AVON — This year 18 outstanding seniors applied for the Rotary $1000 scholarships, and five were selected as recipients.
At the Rotary’s recent fourth annual Evening of Recognition, each of these five recipients were recognized for their academic, leadership and service accomplishments.
Recipients include Veronica Blair, Mark Bode, Jillian Phillips (Interact officer), Alex Price (Interact officer), and Trenton Wright.
The Avon Rotary Club is an organization comprised of business and community leaders dedicated to the motto “Service Above Self.”
The club has given scholarships to Avon High School students since 1989 based on a combination of academic achievement and leadership with an emphasis on community service.
Additionally, students who demonstrate leadership in the Rotary sponsored Avon High School Interact Club are given special consideration.
