Society’s Assets awarded two scholarship awards this month. The total amount of the awards, $3000, was generated by the golf outing fundraiser last year. The two recipients are students with disabilities, seeking post-secondary degrees and residing in the agency’s service area that includes Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. The judges were impressed with the accomplishments of the applicants who excel in many areas, including academics, music, arts, sports, and community service. They recognize the achievements of all the applicants and are proud to assist the scholarship recipients in reaching their higher education and career goals. Judging was based on academic record, extracurricular activities, personal essay, and recommendations.
