The South Brunswick Islands (SBI) Rotary Club awarded several scholarships to seniors from West Brunswick High School. The scholarships were awarded to Corryn Diemer, Greg Hensley, Daniel Hernandez, Mary Amron Lee, Mary Britt Nelson, Nicole Turner and Darius Williams.
In past years, the club awarded three $1,000 scholarships to area seniors. The applicants for this year’s scholarships were so outstanding the Rotarians who interviewed the applicants asked fellow club members to find a way to award more than three scholarships.
Cindy Reed spoke on behalf of the team and challenged her fellow Rotarians to “dig deep” and find a way to help this outstanding group of applicants.
“This year’s applicants are so filled with energy and the desire to make a difference in the world. We need to find a way to give them a helping hand so they might fulfill their dreams,” Reed said.
Club members personally donated another $2,500 in response to Reed’s plea. The club board also allocated more funds, which allowed the club to present a total of seven $1,000 scholarships this year.
