Allison Shaw, a senior at Broken Arrow High School, has been selected as the recipient of the First National Bank & Trust Co.’s First Achievement Award for 2020-21.  
One of this year’s top BAHS students, Shaw says she plans to use the scholarship to attend Oklahoma State University where she will study biology pre-med sciences and take the first step in fulfilling a lifelong dream of being a doctor. 
Shaw carries a 3.91 cumulative grade average, is a member of the National Honor Society and served as secretary of both her junior and senior class boards. She was also a member of the nationally recognized Pride of Broken Arrow Marching Band and was named a leader of its flute section. 
Away from the classroom, she was a member the Broken Arrow Youth City Council and with her fellow councilors traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in a National League of Cities conference. 
She is the daughter of Michael and Beth Shaw, both of whom are captains in the Broken Arrow Police Department. 
In addition to its $20,000 yearly commitment to Broken Arrow Schools, First National annually presents a high school senior a renewable scholarship it named the First Achievement Award. Since the program was launched in 1989 Broken Arrow’s first bank has paid more than $250,000 to deserving local students.
