The Bristol Rotary Club will give eight new scholarships – with a value of $24,000 each – this spring to area high school seniors heading off to college.

The scholarships, a gift of the late Bristol Rotarian Karl Schwartz, are for $6,000 per school year. They are renewable for four years.

Each year, the club determines the number of new awards and their value.

The Schwartz awards are available to graduating high school seniors living and attending school in Bristol, Plymouth, Plainville, Southington and Burlington. The student must be heading to a four-year college.

Applications are handled professionally through Scholarship America. They are due March 1.

Students can download applications directly from the Bristol Rotary Club website. They are available on the homepage under “homepage downloads.”
Our club sponsored Mary Majerus-Collins, 17, to travel to Quito, Ecuador, where she stayed with 16-year-old Laura Espinoza Jara and her family. After a month, the girls flew to the U.S., where they are with Mary's family in Connecticut. Laura returned to Quito at the end of August. While in Ecuador, Mary visited the Rotary Club of Laura's mom and on August 11, then teamed up as guest speakers for our club. After speaking to the club, the girls visited one of our club Giants, Bob Williamson, a 58-year member of the Bristol Rotary Club who remains as involved as possible given that his knees are hampering his mobility. Bob's wife Janet was also in on the fun.
A BIG thank you to all of our golfers!  Everyone had a great day and all money raised goes back to the community.
