NB Rotary Scholarship Awardees – Lexus Soumahoro & Darryl Jonathan Terry
In late May, Club Members Linda Berg-Cross and Kevin Flynn interviewed two candidates for scholarship funds as approved by the Club Board through the Rotary Charitable Foundation of North Bethesda. Both applications were approved by the Scholarship Committee and passed on to the Club and Foundation Boards, which gave their approvals in late May. We’re happy to announce that both candidates have accepted the scholarships and are planning to join us at our June 10 meeting.
