ROCKFORD (WREX) — Graduation is right around the corner and some students are starting their next chapter with some hard earned cash.
The Rotary Club awarded scholarships Thursday to students in the Rockford area.
The students received scholarships based on community service. It’s something they hope will go a long way.
“It’s played a huge role and it’s honestly why I wanted to go into nursing,” scholarship winner Abigail Seiter said. “I want to help people.”
The scholarship awards totaled $4,000.
