Batavia Kiwanis presents $3,500 in scholarships to Batavia High grads
In July, members from the Kiwanis Club of Batavia presented three well-deserving Batavia High School Key Club members with $3,500 in scholarships to assist with upcoming education expenses.
Batavia High grads Samantha Musielak, Natalie Bock and William Huber all displayed exemplary leadership while serving their community through their years with the Key Club.
Key Club International is the oldest and largest student-led service program for high school students. Key Club promotes leadership through serving others. Batavia High School's Key Club hosts over 200 members each year, making it one of the strongest youth service organizations in the area.
Kiwanis Club of Batavia fundraises annually to support the sponsored leadership programs at each of the Batavia Unit District 101 schools including Key Club at Batavia High School, Builders Club at Rotolo Middle School, and K-Kids at each of the six elementary schools in the district.
A portion of those funds go to support the Kiwanis of Batavia Foundation Scholarships.
Two of those awards are given away each year at the amount of $1,000 each. A special scholarship, the Phyllis Mary Cassidy Community Builder Award is also awarded annually in the amount of $1,500.
