$25,000 To 30 Student Scholarships From Kiwanis

LABELLE, FL. -- The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle recently held a special scholarship awards dinner for over 30 LaBelle High School students. The total amount of scholarships totaled close to $25,000. 

The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle is dedicated to youth and awards annual scholarships to the top high school student candidates selected by the club’s scholarship committee. The scholarships are designed to recognize and support exceptional students graduating from LaBelle High School, who have distinguished themselves academically, as leaders in extracurricular activities and services to their communities. The scholarships consist of a cash award to be used towards the student’s tuition.

A huge thanks goes to the community from the club, because the funding to support these scholarships comes from the proceeds of the Kiwanis Thrift Store. Over the last few years, over $120,000 has been awarded to LaBelle High School students. 

The next time you clean out your closets, or have “left-overs” from a yard sale, consider donating items to the LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store so that scholarships can continue to support local students. 

The LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store is located at: 155 S. Bridge Street in LaBelle.
