LAKE TULLOCH LIONS CLUB SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE REPORT
I have been asked to give an update on the 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 coordinator 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 one hundred thousand dollar plus range. This year the total was one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars.
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 each year. This year our club awarded five, one thousand dollar scholarships. Scholarship recipients must be Copperopolis area residents with an acceptable combination of GPA, school activities and need.
The recipients this year were Devin Mogg, Quincy Bird, Shileen Andico, Alexia Stafford and Clayton Stearns.
For future efforts here is how it works, applications go out to prospective recipients and are submitted to Courtney Brooksher at Bret Harte High School. Courtney will than provide our committee with the application packets for applicants that meet our criteria. The scholarship committee will review and select from prospective recipients. The scholars that qualify will be awarded scholarships on Senior Awards Night in May next year. We should all help in getting the word out.
