Harland earns $1,000 scholarship for community-oriented blog post


Homeschool senior student Katherine Harland was selected as the recipient of the Ponte Vedra Focus Blog Writing Scholarship, sponsored by The Volen Group, Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners.

She will receive $1,000 toward college expenses. The annual award recognizes an area high school senior who writes the most compelling community-oriented blog post.

Harland’s article entitled, “Smile through the Miles: A Closer Look at Three Engaging Spots That Will Maintain Your Sanity while Running in Jacksonville” was selected from numerous entries. Harland’s submission was inspired by her four years of running cross country and track for Mandarin High. Harland’s article, along with the top entries, will all be posted on the Ponte Vedra Focus blog in the next few weeks.

Gwinn Volen, founder of the Ponte Vedra Focus blog and owner of The Volen Group said there were several standout submissions this year.

“I know spring is a hectic time for seniors," she said. "I was very impressed by the thought that went into the blog articles.” This is the second annual scholarship offered by Ponte Vedra Focus and The Volen Group.
