Bushy Run Lions to offer scholarships
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.
