MINDEN, Nev. — Carson Valley Sertoma awarded $16,000 in scholarships in this year’s Memorial Book Scholarship and Vocational Scholarship programs. From 25 applications submitted this year, eight students were chosen for interviews and all eight received between $1,000 and $3,000 towards their book costs. The scholarships are distributed over each student’s 4-year undergraduate college program. The vocational scholarship can be used for fees, books, and other costs.
These scholarships are awarded to Douglas County high school seniors who are going into helping professions. Among the recipients are future physical therapists, nurses, neurosurgeons, chefs, and social workers.
The annual Scholarship Breakfast celebration was held Friday, May 26th, with the winners and their parents in attendance, as well as many prior scholarship winners who returned to tell of their progress in their college experience.
