Rotary Club of Mineral Wells on Tuesday awarded scholarships to six Mineral Wells High School seniors during the school's 2019 Scholarship Assembly in the high school auditorium.
Above, from left, Zander Adams, Brei Ruelas and Breanna Seaton were the recipients of $1,000 Rotary scholarships each. Presenting them on behalf of the club was 2020-21 president nominee Tonya Gary.
Tonya also formally presented Rotary Club of Mineral Wells' three Four-Way Speech Contest scholarships to the three winners from earlier this year. Mia Elder, second from left, won the local contest and received a $1,000 scholarship; Rachel Carter, left, was the winner of a $500 scholarship; and Bradley Aaron received a $250 scholarship.
Monies for local Rotary scholarships are made possible through the community's support of fundraisers including the U.S. flag subscription program, the annual Crazy Kicker 100 bike tour and other fundraisers throughout the year.
We congratulate not only our six scholarship winners, but all who received community, academic and athletic scholarships and aid to help them advance in their educational and career pursuits and guide them to success, and serve their communities and fellow humans and, like us, put "Service Above Self."
