Masonic Lodge awards $6,000 in scholarships

MEEKER I At the annual awards assembly Tuesday, May 8, at Meeker High School, members of the local Masonic Lodge awarded $6,000 in scholarship grants to the following outstanding 2012 graduates: Trey Morris, Holly Knezovich, Andrea Cook, Katherine Morgan, Jordan Haney, Aubrey Walsh, Randia Rule and Adrienne Wix.
Each year the Masons collect donations through pancake breakfasts at the Fourth of July and the Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials, as well as a George Washington Birthday Dinner. Depending on the number of applicants and the funds available, the selection committee awards grants that are paid to the college of the student’s choice in the fall. The only mandatory requirement is that the students must attend an institute of higher learning in Colorado, and be a graduating senior in high school. Congratulations to each recipient on your accomplishments thus far.
