Ten Marco Island high school graduates were made very happy by the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce. The ten were chosen to receive scholarships thanks to the Chamber’s Leadership Marco committee which hold events such as Wet Paint Live to fund the scholarships. Students from Lely High School, Marco Island Academy and St. John Neumann applied. The Education Committee is tasked with reviewing the applications andinterviewing candidates, then naming the recipients.
The 2015 scholarship winners and their families were celebrated at an event held at CJ’s on the Bay on Wednesday, May 20th. Dick Shanahan, Chamber President, introduced recipients, and there to congratulate each was Sandi Reidemann, Katie O’Hara, Donna Niemczyk, Lori Wagor and Lisa Meurgue, who extended warm wishes for their future educational endeavors. Over $20,000.00 was awarded to the ten students. Kudos to the 2015 scholarship winners.
