The Lacey Rotary Club Foundation gave college scholarships to eight North Thurston students on May 27th, at the annual Rotary awards luncheon.

 Eligible students must be graduating seniors of public and private high schools within the boundaries of NTPSD. The scholarship committee, led by Mike Marohn, evaluated students based on academics and activities with a special focus on "service above self" - community service.  Lacey Rotary helped support over 245 local students for the past 30 years!
