Published 4:06 pm Wednesday, May 31, 2017
At the May 25 meeting of the Rotary Club of Tryon, the seven winners of the club’s annual scholarship awards were introduced to the club. In the three categories of scholarships, four students receive $8,000 over a four year period; two students receive an award of $3,000 over two years; and one student receives the Ortiz Service Above Self award of $1,000.
The winners were selected after extensive interviews and consideration by a committee of Rotarians chaired by Michael Baughman. The awards are funded by the Rotary Club of Tryon Foundation from ticket sales to the two annual Community Chorus concerts.
At the meeting, each recipient spoke briefly to the club members about their plans to continue with their education.
