Valley Students Awarded Scholarships



The Rotary Club of Woodstock has presented $15,000 in college scholarships this past year to local students. The announcement was recently made by Jeremy Cleary, Scholarship Committee Chairman.

At Central High School, $1,000 scholarships were awarded to Kelly Bullock, Jacqueline Connell, Bailey Gale, Alina Jaffri, Thomas Lam, Sarah Grace Schechtel and Hayley Wisman. Strasburg High School student Briana Chapman won a $2,000 scholarship while $1,000 scholarships went to Morgan Lea Knave and Michaela Amari. The Stonewall Jackson High School recipients of $2,000 scholarships were Dakota Baker and Abigail Simon.

Much of the funding for scholarships derives from the bequest of the estate of Marlin Krouse, a well-known Fort Valley resident and teacher.

The Rotary Club of Woodstock has provided more than $150,000 in scholarships to local students, over the years. The Club meets every Wednesday at noon at the Moose Lodge in Woodstock.
