The South Washington County Scholarship Committee awarded three $6,000 scholarships for 2018. The recipients were announced at awards ceremonies May 3 for East Ridge High School, May 29 for Woodbury High School and May 30 for Park High School.

The recipients are

  • Justin Alpers of East Ridge High School
  • Haley Roettger of Woodbury High School
  • Delaney Young of Park High School

Since the scholarship formation in 1982, continuing support from the St. Paul Park/Newport Lions, Margaret Rivers Foundation and individual donations have enabled the SWCS Committee to award scholarships each year to students attending District 833 high schools. The first scholarships were $250 each and the committee now awards a total of $18,000 for three scholarships of $6,000, given in increments of $1,500 per year. With the overlapping years of allocation, the fund supports 12 recipients each year.

The grants are based on superior athleticism, high scholastic achievement and outstanding citizenship.
