The Rotary Club or Lakewood and Rocky River awarded four college scholarships at its weekly meeting on April 1.

Graduating seniors Semra Dervisevic and Margaret McIlwee from Lakewood High School, Lauren Driscoll from Rocky River High School, and Molly Rogers from St. Joseph Academy each received $3,000 awards from the Lakewood-Rocky River Rotary Foundation. The scholarship program is part of over $60,000 that the Rotary Club donates to the community each year.

In addition to demonstrating academic achievement and potential, these four scholarship winners were chosen for their character, extracurricular activities, and community involvement.

Winners of Rotary’s annual Speech, Music, and Visual Arts Contest were honored at an awards ceremony and reception April 2 at the Beck Center for the Arts.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River, the competition annually showcases the incredible talents of students attending one of five high schools – Lakewood, Lutheran West, Magnificat, Rocky River, and St. Edward.

Over $63,500 in grants from the Lakewood-Rocky River Rotary Foundation will be used to provide scholarships, recognize student achievement, purchase dictionaries for third graders, and help fund worthy programs by community organizations.

The awards focused on three main areas – community health and wellness, food and nutrition, and programs that encourage and foster youth leadership.

The 16 students, top performers in their Career-Technical programs, were chosen for their exemplary accomplishments in the classroom, school activities, clubs, athletics and service in the community. Each student exemplifies traits of leadership, dedication, responsibility, caring, community involvement, and initiative.
