Arleen Schwartz Scholarship Fund
Each year the Greenhills Mathematics Department awards a senior female student the Arleen Schwartz Excellence in Mathematics Scholarship. In honor of Mrs. Schwartz and in keeping with her goals of rewarding, encouraging, and promoting young women in their study of mathematics, the department makes this selection primarily on the basis of achievement in our math curriculum and interest in future study and use of mathematics. This award is accompanied by a college scholarship.
Florence H. Leslie Math Prize
Each year the Greenhills Mathematics Department honors a senior as our Florence H. Leslie Outstanding Mathematics Student. The department makes this selection on the basis of achievement in our math curriculum, performance of mathematics outside of Greenhills (such as competitions, summer institutes, internships, and university courses), and service by sharing this talent within our community.
The Greenhills History & Social Sciences Award
Established in 2016, this award recognizes seniors who have demonstrated academic and extracurricular excellence in the study of history and social sciences during their Greenhills careers. Recipients are selected based on their sustained engagement in, passion for, and commitment to critical historical investigation and analysis.
The J. Anthony Paulus Award
This award is presented to two seniors each of whom has exemplified and led others to exemplify those attributes so magnificently reflective of “The Spirit of Greenhills”: a commitment to excellence in all that they undertake; a mindfulness of the significance of living in a community that upholds high values, morals and ethics, and therefore of one’s personal obligation to contribute to one’s community, to enrich it, and when necessary, defend it; a willingness to take strong stands in support of what is right, even, or especially, when taking those stands can be expected to result in the need to endure the criticism of those who disagree.
The Jay DeLay and Pauline McMillan DeLay Award for Learning and Teaching Innovation
This award was established in 1990 by former faculty member Jeanine DeLay in honor of her mother, an Ann Arbor teacher. Since 2002, the award has recognized faculty creativity, experimentation, and innovation.
Jean Diekoff Memorial Latin Prize
The Jean Diekoff Latin Prize annually recognizes one Middle School and one Upper School Latin student for their performance, effort, and dedication. Originally established through the generosity of William Stegeman ‘80, the prize was renamed and re-dedicated in 2013 with support from Ms. Diekoff’s former students, colleagues, and friends in recognition of her devoted service as a Latin teacher and beloved member of the school community from 1971 through 1998.
The Jim Posante Award
The Jim Posante Award is given in memory of Jim Posante, who for 32 years brought a passion for theatre and teaching to the students at Greenhills. Jim sought and nurtured the best in his students, turning torchbearers into kings, chorus members into divas, and rude mechanicals into royal players. He made everyone around him, students and faculty alike, feel significant, on and off the stage. This award is given to students who have demonstrated a proficiency in and passion for the performing arts and who honor Jim’s spirit of wanting to bring out the best in others.
