Sunrise Rotary awards scholarships

Oct 4, 2013

News-Register Staff

Previously, the club awarded scholarships to graduating high school seniors, as many other groups do. It developed a new model this year, after studying the community’s educational needs.

The new format awards scholarships to Chemeketa students who are enrolled in two-year programs, completing their GEDs or returning to school after several years to learn new career skills. The scholarships can go to students of any age, not just traditional college age.

This year, the $1,000 scholarships were awarded to:

n Wendy Farris, a business management major who plans to transfer to Oregon State University to pursue a degree in business management with an emphasis in agriculture.

n Heather Gormand, a business management major who plans to transfer to George Fox College to study business administration.

n Jeremy Togstad, a nursing major.
