Awarding outstanding seniors
Every year, the Rotary Club of Birmingham Foundation awards a group of outstanding Birmingham City Schools seniors for their hard work. Students are chosen based on their academic and extracurricular achievements, commitment to serving the community, personal essay and teacher recommendations.
This week, the Rotary Club happily awarded the 2022 recipients to recognize their hard work. These five outstanding seniors selected attend Birmingham City Schools:
- Kylan Benson, Ramsay International Baccalaureate High School
- Ebony Woods, Wenonah High School
- Demetria Winston, P.D. Jackson-Olin High School
- Y’Onna Hale, G.W. Carver High School
- Kamari Marzette, Ramsay High School
Each student receives $2,000 per year over four years that can be used for any expenses while they are enrolled in a college or university.
Over sixty seniors applied to the competitive annual scholarship program this year. This is a huge accomplishment for these awesome seniors in our city! 👏
