22 Kiwanis Scholarships Awarded

LABELLE, FL. -- 22 LaBelle High School Seniors are the 2016 Kiwanis Scholarship recipients awarded $17,200 in scholarships last week. The Scholarship program has been a ‘pride and joy’ of Kiwanis since it was founded. It has continued to grow thanks to the community support of the Kiwanis Thrift Store. 

"Thank you for your donations that stock the store and thank you for shopping at the Thrift Store," said Nikki Yeager, President. Just within the last 5 years Kiwanis has been able to award $113,700 in high school scholarships. Adult scholarships are awarded during the summer each year.

Students were brought together for the presentation of their scholarships after being served dinner at Beef O’Bradys Restaurant in LaBelle. Once again Kiwanis would like to Congratulate each graduate and wish each the very best as they step into the next phase of their life.
