Rotary Club of Marlin announces 2021 scholarship winners
The Rotary Club of Marlin has a rich history of awarding scholarships for undergraduate study in academic or vocational fields. The Rotary Club of Marlin has announced that four MISD graduating Seniors have been selected as this year’s winners for scholarships presented annually by the organization. They are Aleighseya Washington, Charlesetta Lewis, Talayah Walker, and Kendra Hayes.
Factors considered were academic achievement, teacher recommendation, a statement of educational plans and financial need, extracurricular activities and community service, plus a specific example of an act he/she has performed in line with Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”
“Each of this year’s recipients have shown not only academic skill and talent, but also a commitment to serve the communities in which they live,” stated Jimi Lynn, Rotary Club of Marlin Scholarship Chair
Ultimately, the community is the winner when we invest in our future leaders and philanthropists.
Money for these scholarships comes from fund-raising events sponsored by the Club throughout the year
Awardees were guests at the Rotary Club’s luncheon meeting on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at The Chicken Place, Marlin.
