AROCHESTER - The Rochester Elks Lodge 1393 presented its first local scholarships in its 102-year history at the Spaulding High School awards night on Wednesday.
The Rochester Elks Scholarship fund was established in August 2022, and because of generous donations by our membership along with fund-raising activities, lodge representatives were able to present these awards to four well-deserved Spaulding High School seniors.
Scholarships awarded were for $1,200 each to Spaulding High School seniors Amy Powers, Colin Bissonnette
Haley Faucher and Kendall Gadbois
The scholarships were awarded based on family membership in the Rochester Elks lodge along with consideration and evaluation of the students' high academics, leadership, community service, and citizenship.
Members of the newly established scholarship committee are Jerry Skidds, Chairman, Cindy Skidds, Sue Cook, Kelly (Cook) Kasprzyk, Don Martin, Patty Taylor, Dennis Dube and Don Abbott.
