The Rotary Club of Leesburg, a local chapter of the 1.2 million-member Rotary International, met last week with counselors from Leesburg’s high schools to prepare for the 2019 Scholarship Program application process.
Through its Perry Winston Scholarship Fund, the Rotary Club of Leesburg annually awards three $10,000 scholarships for higher education expenses to deserving graduating seniors from Leesburg high schools.
“Our Scholarship Program is one of our most favorite community outreach activities each year, and we are excited for the 2019 application process to begin,” stated Valérie Beaudoin, chairwoman of the Rotary Club of Leesburg Scholarship Committee. “We thank the high school counselors for taking the time to meet with us and for their dedication to their students. It’s a real pleasure to work with them on ensuring as many high school seniors as possible apply for one of our three annual scholarships.”
School counselors gave their thoughts and suggestions to Rotarians in advance of the release of this year’s application forms in late January. All interested applicants should contact their high school counselors or email the program directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
