Rotary scholarships to be awarded to CGHS seniors

By Gloria Burns….
The Rotary Club of Coral Gables is able to award scholarships, thanks to it generous supporters including the Jules Zentner Scholarship Fund through Trustee David Sanchez; Rick and Margarita Tonkinson Foundation, and Joan Reitsma and the Miami Dade Chapter of Thrivent Financial.

These donations combined with weekly meeting Happy Dollars and other individual donations will fund $11,000 in scholarships in the 2011 Rotary year to seniors at Coral Gables High School (CGHS). The club acknowledges Rotarians Dr. Randy Groh, Susan Guttmann and other Happy Dollars leaders for keeping the enthusiasm for scholarships alive and for all those who directed their raffle winnings to this program.

Scholarships are open to seniors at Coral Gables Senior High School and applications are available in the CAP Office at the school from Gayle Payne or Barbara Inskeep. The Coral Gables High School student population is 80 percent from outside of Coral Gables and there are many students in need of help for higher education.
