If you are a Verona High School senior and you want to apply for one of the very generous scholarships from the Verona Lions Club, you’ve got until this Friday, May 10, to do it.
The Lions scholarships are for graduating students who are Verona residents who actively participated in valuable services to their community, school, house of worship, or a non-profit charitable organization. The award criteria are not based on academic achievement or financial need but rather exclusively on volunteer service. Volunteerism and service to others is at the heart of the Lions Club credo: “We Serve”.
The Lions may present up to three cash awards, and the total amount the Lions will award this year has increased to $6,000.
Applications should provide a clear description of services performed and when they took place. Please mail applications to the Verona Lions, P.O. Box 38, Verona, NJ 07044. All mailed applications must be postmarked no later than May 10, 2019. The Verona Lions is an international service organization that has been active in Verona since 1951.
