GENOA – The Genoa Community Women’s Club will award several college scholarships to graduating seniors from Genoa-Kingston High School. Application forms are available now at the high school guidance office. Forms must be returned to the guidance office by April 1.
Winners will be selected based on financial need, involvement in the community through volunteer work and service projects, and academic records. Applicants must attend an institution of higher learning beginning fall 2013. The award may only be used to defray the costs of tuition, room and board, textbooks and extra class fees. All monies will be sent directly to the school of the students’ choice.
Presentation of the scholarships will be during the commencement ceremony in May. In the past six years, a total of $22,000 has been awarded to 19 students.
The club sponsors the Wonderful World of Christmas Craft Show each November to benefit the scholarship fund. The club has awarded college scholarships for 65 years.
