Rotary Awards Seven Scholarships

The Sturbridge Rotary Club has been awarding scholarships to local students for the past 48 years.  The first scholarship was for $500 and the amount awarded has steadily increased over the years.  This year Sturbridge Rotary awarded scholarships totaling $6,000 to students at Tantasqua Regional High School.  Cumulatively, Rotary is proud to have awarded over $220,000 in local scholarships.

This year’s recipients of Sturbridge Rotary Scholarships of $1,000 each are Alexis Carson, Sydney Leanna, Emma O’Coin, Ainsley Maus, Mary Godek and Jason Snyder.  Additionally, Alexa Knight received the $500 “Wendall Wright Memorial Award”.  Wendall was an educator and long-time supporter of Rotary.

These students will receive their funding upon successful completion of their first semester. Congratulations to all the recipients!
