Each year the Rotary Club of Beaufort honors a number of outstanding high school students with scholarships. It is our opportunity to invest in the future of some of Beaufort’s most promising young men and women.
The Forsythe Scholarships, named after a prominent member of this club, was awarded to Patrick Mazzeo, (Beaufort Academy), Maria Cooler (Beaufort High School), and Natalie Alvarez (Governor’s School). The winners each received a $1,300 scholarship.
The Jim Law Memorial Scholarship Awards, in the amount of $2,200, was established in memory of Father Jim Law, a highly respected local Episcopal clergyman and avid golfer. The money is raised by an annual golf fundraising tournament. The winners were Rebecca Strawn (Beaufort Academy) and Illyona Johnstone (Battery Creek High School).
The club also annually awards a scholarship to a student who has chosen to further his or her education via technical training in today’s technology-based workforce. The scholarship of $1,000 will assist the student as he or she pursues an education at a post-secondary technical school, college or university. The 2014 winner is Kacey Dalrymple (Beaufort High School).
Congratulations, again, to our winners.
