 One Oldham County student will find it a little easier to pay for college this fall thanks to a scholarship from local McDonald’s Restaurants of Kentuckiana owner/operators and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana (RMHCK).  

North Oldham County High School student, Margaret Foster, was recognized and awarded with a one-time scholarship in the amount of $2,500 in a ceremony held Tuesday, May 10 at the Greater Louisville Medical Society.

Interested students were asked to submit personal essays and were chosen based on academic performance, community involvement and financial need. Finalists were interviewed and chosen by the RMHCK Educational Advisory Committee (EAC).  Students’ career goals include pre-medical, speech therapy, music therapy, aviation, engineering and nursing.

“When I sing for seniors at local nursing homes or churchgoers in my choir, I notice peace overcome my audience — peace absent in our society’s regimentation and materialism. However, many suffering individuals do not have access to art’s transformative power,” Foster, who plans to attend Westminster Choir College in the fall, said. “I want to bring music to those that truly need it, and I anticipate a career centered on that aspiration, possibly in arts administration, vocal performance or music therapy.”
