This has been another successful scholarship season for the Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica. Handing out over $46,000 worth of academic, music and arts scholarships to our high achieving local students is always our favorite activity of the year.
This week we gave out scholarships to the area high school seniors for academic achievement and community involvement. Students from Samohi, St. Monica's, New Roads, Olympic, Crossroads and University High were represented, as well as PAL and the Boys & Girls Club. All are graduating seniors and will attend institutions around the country including Berkeley, University of Washington, Dickinson College and Santa Monica College.
Earlier this week we also handed out 27 scholarships to our area's most talented musicians. Club members, parents and community members in attendance, were entertained with music on instruments including the viola, the flute, a French horn and the voice. Earlier in the month, we gave out scholarships to our student visual and fine arts achievers at the annual school district art show.
The Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica has been distributing scholarships for nearly 100 years to local students. If you'd like to participate in our work, join us for breakfast or lunch as our guest.
