Following its celebrated tradition and practice, Marco Island’s Chamber of Commerce recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to a diverse group of seven high school seniors for their excellent school performance. The recipients were selected by a Chamber committee chaired by former Chamber President Joyce McFarland of Marco Island Clothing, and including Nancy Carrington of Marco Island Florists and Desiree Buhelos proprietor of the Boat House.
Ms. McFarland commented on the outstanding group of students: “This was a very difficult decision for all of us. We had an exceptional diverse group of highly talented and qualified students. From their resumes alone it is evident that they deserve special recognition. The Chamber is pleased and privileged to make this contribution to their higher education.”
