On Friday, May 24 the Carthage Rotary Club met at the Panola College Ballroom to present five students a $1,000 scholarship. Four of these students, Kelby Cameron, Jacob White, Jacob Stillwell, and Jacqueline Jackson, plan to attend Panola College in the fall. Patrick Murphy plans to attend Texas A&M in the fall. “This is always a fun event,” said Sonya Brasher, Carthage Rotary Club President. “The brainchild of Carlton Shamburger, the annual scholarship awards ceremony provides our members an opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of these students. During the event each Rotarian passes along a few words of wisdom and encouragement to the students. Our goal is to reinforce the importance of reaching this milestone and to encourage the students to continue their education.”
