The deadline for entries is fast approaching for the Sunrise Optimist’s Vern Stahl Memorial Scholarships. Entry deadline is April 23, 2021 at 3 p.m. Applications must be back in the appropriate counselor’s office at that time.

The Sunrise Optimist Vern Stahl Memorial Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded to a graduating senior from the three Roswell high schools, Roswell High, Goddard High and University High/Early College. Applications will be judged on scholarship, community involvement, school participation, work experience and need. Applications for the scholarships are still available at any of the three guidance counselors’ offices.

The Sunrise Optimist Club of Roswell has awarded more than $75,000 over the past 20 years since its inception. The winners for this year’s scholarships will be announced in May at the awards assembly at the respective schools.

The Sunrise Optimist Club encourages others who may know a graduating senior with higher education plans to let them know about the scholarship availability.

For more information about the Vern Stahl Memorial Scholarship, contact Roger K. Burnett, scholarship chairman, at 575-420-9420.
