The announcement was released by Harvey S. Firestone, Jr., Chairman of the Company. This brings to 63 the number of students across the country who have won Firestone college schol arships in the three years since the program was adopted. One high school senior in the Gastonia area received a scholar ship award. He was Bobby E. Sellers of Bessemer City. >!: THE COMPANY scholarships provide for full tuition at the school of the winner’s choice, aca demic fees, textbooks and a con tribution toward the cost of living while in school. They are renewable annually until requirements for an academic degree are fulfilled, pro viding satisfactory scholastic stand ings are maintained and all other qualifications are met. Because of the extreme closeness in the scoring of the leading appli cants, the Scholarship Board of the Company decided to award six more scholarships this year that) has been the custom.
