2017 Naperville Evening Kiwanis Scholarship Recipients


Awards are granted annually to graduating seniors of our Key Club High Schools: Metea Valley and Waubonsie Valley. The purpose of this award is to recognize students for their display of leadership, community service, and successful educational efforts in furtherance of their education. To be eligible for this award the candidate must be a Key Club member in good standing and plan to attend a college or university in the upcoming school year. The Kiwanis club seeks to recognize educational achievement equally with leadership and community service. 

During this year's award ceremony held on July 17th, Bob Horton, Chair of the Scholarship Committee, introduced the  Scholarship recipients and each of them made a short presentation about their involvement in Key Club and where they plan to attend college/university.
