Scholarship winners, Natasha and Hannah, attended the May 23rd Club meeting to receive their $2,000 scholarships since they are not able to attend the Student Scholarship Recognition Dinner to be held on May 30th at Messiah College. We congratulate them and wish them the best as they pursue further education.
The Rotary Club invites students from six schools to attend club meetings for a month during the school year. Each month a new group of students is  invited. At the end of the school year, the club awards $2,000 scholarships to a student from each school based on an application which they submit and the interactions that occur at the meetings. Students who continue their education in Pennsylvania also have an opportunity to receive a $2,000 matching grant from PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) based on need.
