Four scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors from Penn-Trafford and other area schools, who reside in the Bushy Run Lion’s Club service area – east of Baker School Road in Penn Township

The scholarship awards will be granted to students based on academics, community activities, extra curricular activities, a written statement and financial need.

March 22 is the deadline for submitting applications to the Penn-Trafford High School guidance offices. The awards will be presented at the May 2019 Penn-Trafford High School awards ceremony.

The club will award three $1,000 Carl R. Bruno Scholarships. These scholarships are named to honor Carl Bruno, an early superintendent of the Penn-Trafford School District and a long-time Bushy Run Lion member. The Emery C. Toth Music Scholarship will be awarded to a student pursuing a music-related degree.

Since the inception of the program in 1992, the club has awarded over 113 scholarships to deserving students planning to attend a college, university or other school requiring a minimum of two years of study before graduation.

The scholarship applications and detailed information are available through the Penn-Trafford High School guidance counselor’s office.

Joe DiDomenico, Lions Scholarship committee chairman, can be contacted for additional information at 724-744-3915.

The recipients and their families will be guests of the Bushy Run Lions Club at its Scholarship Night Dinner on May 16.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
