2012 MVS Scholarship Applications Reviewed
The 2011-2012 MVS Scholarship Program began on Sept. 1, 2011 with scholarship applications being available for download on-line at the Elks national website. With the Dec. 1st application deadline, 16 applications were received. Upon subsequent review and scoring by the local lodge MVS Scholarship Committee, the applications with the highest scores, 2 males and two females, were sent on to the next level of competition. The closeness in the scoring among some of the applications is indicative of the amazing scholastic achievemnents, academic awards and community services of these students. It seems unfair that not more high-scoring applications cannot be sent on to the next level for judging. It is hopeful that one or more of our top applicants will be selected again with the highest scoring applications to be sent on even further to subsequent levels of competition. In the last three years, one of our top applicants was awarded a $1,000 1-yr scholarship at the state level of judging. There is a good chance for this to happen again this year. These students truly deserve some sort of financial assistance for all their hard work.
