Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The Sunrise Optimist Club of Roswell has announced the winners of the 2021 Vern Stahl Memorial Scholarships. The $1,000 scholarship winners are Sidney Bills, Goddard High School; Emily Tucker, Roswell High School; and Evelyn Alvarez, Early College High School.

The $500 scholarships were awarded to Kevin Rico, Roswell High School; and Jordan Mathews, Goddard High School. A certificate of accomplishment and a check for the amount of the scholarship will be presented to each winner.

The club presents scholarships to graduating seniors from the Roswell Independent School District high schools. Since the club was chartered in 2000, they have awarded over $70,000 in scholarships. Scholarship Chairman Roger K. Burnett said, “We had some real good applicants for this year’s scholarships. It’s a shame we were not able to award some of the other students for their efforts. I would not only like to thank the students for their efforts, but I want to thank the club members who had the task of judging the scholarship applications.”

Projects are aimed at making Roswell a better place for youth to live. To learn more about the club, call 420-9420.
