The Keys to Your Future Award Fund

Established by Jim and Tiffani Christman and presented by The Jim Christman Team – Keller Williams Real Estate, the Keys to Your Future Award Fund will provide an annual merit award to a student graduating from Palmerton Area School District.

The Keys to Your Future Fund provides a one-year, non-renewable award of at least $500 presented to a qualified graduating high school senior from Palmerton Area School District who demonstrates community and volunteer involvement and/or pride in his or her hometown. 

Minimum qualifications for the merit award include:

  • Demonstrated community and volunteer service
  • Demonstrated involvement in school activities
  • Candidates will be asked to submit a short essay (250-500 words) describing their community involvement OR sharing why they love their hometown

This is not intended to be strictly an educational scholarship; the recipient is not required to attend a post-secondary education institution. The award is intended to assist the recipient with his or her future career and/or education plans, whether he or she attends a post-secondary education institution, joins the military, or immediately enters the workforce.
