Scholarships are given to female high school seniors who have exhibited a strong commitment to volunteer work in their communities.
“One of the main benefits of community service is that it builds a person’s character,” says JLGC scholarship chair, Christine M. Arcari. “It teaches you to communicate, to work as a team and to take on leadership roles; all of these are skills that a person can use throughout their lives.”
JLGC wishes the best to these recipients in their future endeavors and hopes that each will continue their involvement in the community.
To apply, students must complete the application and provide three letters of recommendation. Scholarship applications are available for download at www.jlgalveston.org.
