Each year we invite the senior class students of Iroquois and East Aurora High Schools to write an essay describing their activities both as a student at their school and their involvement in the community in which they live. Activities such as; Scouting, Key Club, Church activities, Boys and Girls Club, community sports programs and most importantly those things which involved family activities and responsibilities. Through the year we hold fundraisers to raise enough money to supply each winner of the scholarship $500 toward their college expenses. This year we had excellent participation from each school and hope the best for every student.
I apologize for the late notice, but I would like to schedule the scholarship application reading/evaluation for this Saturday, May 24th, at 9:00 am. We have 16 from East Aurora and 12 from Iroquois. We will wrap it up before noon almost as a certainty.
For those who have not participated in this, we read through the essays, scoring them to the criteria of the scholarship. We determine the winner from each school right after the reading. It is always an enjoyable morning, with the usual fun and fellowship, but here we get to enjoy some of the fruit of the labor that produced the scholarship money to begin with.
I would appreciate it if you would let me know whether you can make it.
