Lions Club announces MPHS scholarship recipients

Continuing the Fraser River Valley Lions Club’s 34-year tradition of providing college scholarships to outstanding local high school graduates, Bob Boynton and Deb Buhayar of the Fraser River Valley Lions Club handed out 6 scholarships totaling $13,500 at Middle Park High School’s annual Awards Night on May 30th.

This year’s recipients and the Lions scholarships they received were: Nicholas Lawrence and Abigail Turner ($4,000 scholarships at $1,000 per year for four years); Kiera Barr and Darby Howard ($2,000 scholarships at $1,000 per year for two years) to attend Community College/Trade School); Genevieve Newcomer-Neeson (Barbara Nissen Memorial Science Scholarship, one year, $500); and Madison DeCicco (Mary Ann Radkowski Memorial Community Service Scholarship, one year, $1,000). Annually, Lions’ multi-year scholarships carry the names of recently deceased members of the local Lions Club to recognize their many contributions to our Lions Club and community; this year one of the four-year scholarships bore the name of Chuck Campbell.

Over more than three decades, the Fraser River Valley Lions Club has awarded scholarships totaling more than $278,000 to local high school graduates. Scholarship winners apply through the Middle Park High School Counseling Office and a Lions Club committee reviews all applications. The Lions Club thanks the school counselors for their assistance in the scholarship process. According to Bob Boynton, Chair of the Scholarship Committee, “This is one of Lions Club’s most important ways we help our community. We are proud to invest in the future of our youth. It’s a pleasure to review the applications from so many outstanding students.”
