Rochester Elks #1393 Awards Scholarships

The Rochester Elks Lodge 1393 presented the first local scholarships in its 102-year history at the Spaulding High School awards night on Wednesday May 17th. 2023. The Rochester Elks Scholarship fund was established in August 2022, and because of generous donations by our membership along with fundraising activities, lodge representatives were able to present these awards to four well-deserved Spaulding High School seniors.

Scholarships awarded were for $1,200.00 each to the following Spaulding High School seniors:

Amy Powers
Colin Bissonnette
Haley Faucher
Kendall Gadbois

The scholarships were awarded based on family membership in the Rochester Elks lodge along with consideration and evaluation of the students’ high academics, leadership, community service, and citizenship.

Congratulations to all the 2023 scholarship winners and continued success in their future fields of studies.            `

Members of the newly established scholarship committee are Jerry Skidds, Chairman, Cindy Skidds, Sue Cook, Kelly (Cook) Kasprzyk, Don Martin, Patty Taylor, Dennis Dube and Don Abbott.
