St. Simons Rotary awarded five scholarships to graduating high school students to assist them in continuing their education. For more than 65 years, this Rotary Club has awarded four-year scholarships to Glynn County seniors after a several months long process involving applications, submission of test scores, GPAs and interviews. On acceptance of their scholarship, the students — accompanied by their proud parents — addressed the St. Simons Rotary meeting and shared their education and career goals which included pediatric cardiology, cyber security, marketing, veterinarian specializing in endangered species and pediatric oncology.
