During the Senior Awards Night at Coral Shores High School on Tuesday May the 23rd the Florida Keys Elks Lodge # 1872 awarded $30,000.00 to 25 Graduates.
On Thursday June 8th 2023 the Lodge and its membership honored the 2023 CSHS Scholarship Recipients.
Scholarship Chair Person Kim Youngblood and the Committee Members Michelle Lane, Alesa Rehman, Kim McDaniel and Karen Daugherty had a difficult time selecting candidates for this year’s scholarships, due to the amazing stories the applicants shared with the scholarship committee.
This year the Elks Lodge Local Scholarship focused on any student who wanted to further their education. We welcomed all applicants’ regardless of their academic standings, number of service hours or their goals for the future.
We asked the students to share in an essay what if any of the Elks four guiding principles Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity resonated with them.
The committee really enjoyed reading their stories. Refreshments and a dinner were served to the scholarship recipients and their families.
The Lodge and the Scholarship Recipients shared a special cake in their honor. The graduates received a scholarship certificate and received financial scholarship awards in various financial tiers.
Please extend a big congratulations and extend a heartfelt well wishes to these graduates as they embark on their next journey to further their education.
We extend a Big Warm Elkdom Thank You to the Scholarship Committee for a job well done.
