INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The General Federation of Women's Clubs Treasure Coast Women awarded four $1,000 scholarships to four students at a presentation ceremony at C J Cannon's.
Bobbi Burdick, president, and the scholarship committee invited Alma Lee Loy and Keith Hedin of Keith's Oil Can, to present the certificates and checks to the recipients.
The recipients had to go through an application process including an essay, meet a required grade point average and compete with several others to be chosen.
The judges are not give names just the information and we understand that the decision was quite difficult as all were within just hundredths of each other. Huh?
Mr. Hedin presented the arts scholarship, named in honor of his mother, Norma, to Pamela Kay a theater and hospitality major at the University of Central Florida.
Ms. Loy presented the remaining three scholarships to Alex Sechen, who is majoring in accounting at the University of Miami; Stephanie Modica, a pre-law major also at the University of Miami and Kylie Johnson for her nursing degree at Indian River State College.
The event is a combined member social and scholarship presentation.
The funds for the scholarships are raised at the annual Swinging for Scholarships golf scramble fundraiser.
