Thanks to the support of the community over the past year, the Junior Woman’s Club of Verona will again be able to award three scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Each scholarship is worth $1,000.

The three scholarships are:
• The John T. Riesenman Scholarship
• The Jane Myers Scholarship
• The Junior Woman’s Club of Verona Scholarship

All three scholarships are for seniors who have decided to pursue a form of higher education. One scholarship is specifically for a student planning to major in the arts and another is earmarked for a student who has demonstrated the principles of community service and/or charity work during high school.
