TROY, OHIO < 22 May 2015> Two deserving Troy High School seniors earned valuable Rotary Club scholarships to help defray the cost of college in the Fall. Every year, the club offers local seniors the opportunity to apply for the Troy Rotary Community Service and the Troy Rotary Interact Club scholarships. This year, class valedictorian Luke Oaks has been awarded $1,000 for his community service and Collin Moeller received $1,000 for his Interact Club participation. The Interact Club is offered at Troy High School and is sponsored by Rotary.
Moeller earned the scholarship based on his years of participation in Interact, a brief essay he submitted with his application, his scholastic achievement, a letter of recommendation from the club advisor and continued involvement in Troy Rotary Club service projects. Interact is designed for youth ages 15-18 and is a global program that provides opportunities for members to perform community service projects and improve international understanding. Moeller has chosen to attend Miami University in Oxford, Ohio to study finance.
Oaks was awarded the Community Service scholarship, thanks to his scholastic achievement and having demonstrated active community service which supports the ideals and concepts of the Rotary International ‘Four-Way Test.’ He submitted a brief essay and had a letter of recommendation from his club advisor that attested to his active participation in service projects. He is headed to College Station, Texas, to attend Texas A&M University as a National Scholar. He plans to study biomedical engineering and engage in pre-med studies.
These scholarships are offered each year by Rotary, and all applications were reviewed and awarded by The Troy Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee. The club provides the funds through the Troy Rotary Foundation.
