On Friday May 23 the Carthage Rotary Club met at the Panola College Ballroom an awarded a $1,000 scholarships to five students. Tyler Killen, Kristen Liedtke, Guillermo Gomez, Brett May, Kelsey Digilormo all plan to attend Panola College in the fall. 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. Each student is encouraged to continue their education and is reinforced that this milestone is an important one.
