As part of their continuing recognition of youth service in the community, the Sandy Spring Lions Club recently presented scholarships to deserving students at area schools.
During ceremonies conducted at Sherwood High School and Sandy Spring Friends School, scholarships totaling $4500.00 were presented. Recipients at Sherwood were David Mazzeo and Andrew Krotchko, and Dipesh KC was the recipient at SSFS. The Sherwood awards were presented by Club President Greg Fuller, while the Friends School presentation was made by Past District Governor Bill Thomas.
Scholarships are presented each year to students based on academics, community service, school activities and financial need.
The Sandy Spring club is a part of Lions International, the largest service organization in the world with more than 1.3 million members in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
