Soropitmist International of the Sierra Foothills recently annouced their annual 2017 Spring Scholarships Awards.
Catherina Rosevear was the recipient of the $2,000 "Live Your Dream Award," which is given to a woman who has had to postpone her education due to extenuating circumstances and has found the strength and determination to reconnect to her educational goals.
Community Service awards in the amount of $650 were awarded to Junet Bedayn, Courtney Ande-McCullough, Kelsey Arvidson, Sarah Brennan, Jessical Pugel and Sara McCormack. These awards are given to Nevada County high school students who have been recognized for their outstanding service in the community. Many of these students have organized their own unique service projects, and have made a positive impact on adults and children throughout the county.
