LAKE TULLOCH LIONS CLUB SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE REPORT
Fellow Lions here is an update for the 2017 Lake Tulloch Lions Club Scholarship Committee activities. The Lake Tulloch Lions club has been providing scholarships to Bret Harte Union High School graduates for a number of years. Through the efforts of Carla Rolleri and now Courtney Brooksher, the scholarship coordinators at Bret Harte, thousands of dollars in scholarship money has been awarded to deserving scholars. In recent years the total of scholarship dollar awards presented on Senior Awards Night has totaled amounts in the two hundred thousand dollar range.
Over the last few years our club has made available four to six thousand dollars in scholarship awards to the graduating class at Bret Harte. This year our club offered five, one thousand dollar scholarships. The recipients were Karen Medina, Isabelle Herrin, Christine Lora, Grace Garcia and Olivia Monroy. The criteria and basis for scholarship recipient awards are that the student must be Copperopolis area resident with an acceptable combination of scholastic performance, ACT & SAT exam results, consideration is given for essay content and style, their proposed career field and life goals, monetary need and intent to obtain employment to help with expenses, participation in school & community based activities and college, university or post-secondary technical training of choice. We should all help get the word out to candidates that we come into contact with for future scholarship awards.
Applications will go out to prospective recipients and be submitted to Courtney Brooksher / Carla Rolleri (736-8315) at Bret Harte High School. They will than provide our committee with the application packets for applicants that meet our criteria. The scholarship committee will review and select four recipients to be awarded scholarships on Senior Awards Night in May. If any member would like to assist in the process please join us next year.
