Rotary Club President Laura Murray-Faggella noted there was an abundance of applications submitted this year for the annual competition. “These students shine above others. We are very proud of them and we look forward to hearing what they will do in the future,” she stated.
The Frederick M. Breitbarth Memorial Scholarship went to seniors Taylor Burnett, Julia Friedman, Anna Lazin and Maya Milstein. Juniors who will receive the scholarship next year are Devin Batheja, Sarah Lamb, Ella McGovern. The scholarship recognizes students for their scholarship, participation and service in school and community activities expressed by the Rotary’s mission of Service Above Self.
