Island Christian Church wishes to promote genuine character development in the youth of our community. To that end, each year ICC sponsors the American Heritage Scholarship which reaches beyond the confines of our church community to the community-at-large in order to recognize and reward young people of proven and genuine character.
The Scholarship was awarded to five graduating seniors whose lives exemplify genuine character and promote the Scriptural values upon which our country was founded. The American Heritage Scholarship Committee judged applicants using the Scriptural values of genuine, personal faith in God; patriotism; personal honesty and integrity; compassion and concern for others; and the traditional moral beliefs described in the Ten Commandments including honor for parents, the sanctity of life, chastity, and honesty and truthfulness in all dealings with others. Two $1,500 scholarships and three $500 High Honorable Mention scholarships were awarded.
