One female and one male student from each school are nominated by their respective schools to compete for $1,000 college scholarships. All the students exemplify the highest academic, service and character standards in the community.
The female students, accompanied by family and school representatives, made short presentations before the club on April 23rat its weekly luncheon, the male students on April 30.
The club will choose one female and one male from these outstanding high school students to receive a $1,000 scholarship at the college or university of their choice. The scholarships were awarded at the club's luncheon on May 14.
