The South Carroll Lioness-Lions Club has announced the awarding of two $1,500 college scholarships to Carroll County students.
Joy Zimmer, from Liberty High School, and Michael Capparelli, from Century High School, received their scholarships at the club's June 27 meeting at the Messiah Lutheran Church Celebration Hall in Berrett.
Zimmer plans to study at Carroll Community College, where she will major in education. Capparelli plans to study at Virginia Tech, where he will major in accounting and finance.
The scholarships were awarded to these students based on their qualifications as good citizens, a grade point average of 3.0 or better, acceptance at the college of their choice and their commitment to community service. Extracurricular activities at school, involvement in community and church organizations, service hours and financial need were considered in making the selection of these students. In addition, work experience, future goals and a written recommendation by a teacher or guidance counselor were reviewed.
The scholarship committee, chaired by Lioness-Lion Judy Champ, reviewed 21 applications for the scholarships.
