As the current school year came to a close, four local students have received assistance toward their higher education thanks to scholarships awarded to them by the Rotary Club of Lake Hickory. The club awarded four scholarships to graduating seniors from four high schools in Catawba County.
High school award winners were chosen from applicants graduating from a high school in the county, based on academic excellence, financial need, and each student’s personal demonstration of the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self.”
All Rotary Club of Lake Hickory Scholarship recipients for the year 2014 received scholarship certificates and were invited to join the Rotary Club of Lake Hickory for lunch during a May meeting where they introduced themselves to the full membership.
Scholarship recipients for 2014 are:
* Kierra Garrett, a graduate of Bunker Hill High School
* Kyla Little, a graduate of St. Stephens High School
* Thomas Colton, a graduate of Discovery High School
* Aaron Darden, a graduate of Bandy’s High School
Congratulations to this year's scholarship recipients!
