(Humble, TX) May 18, 2017—The Humble Rotary Club awarded two Community Award Recognizing Excellence in Service (CARES) scholarships. $5000  was presented to Akriti Keswani and  $2000 to Saul Dominquez.
The CARES scholarships were presented for outstanding community service, a high grade point average (GPA) and for exibiting leadership qualities during the academic year. Akitri Keswani received a $5000 scholarship and Saul Dominquez received a $2000 Scholarship. Keswani is graduating 3rd in her class at Quest Early College High School and Dominiquez is graduating 13th in his class at Atascocita High School.
As part of the application process, candidates were asked to provide a brief statement about their community service and how this experience impacted them. Additionally, they were asked to explain how they will use Rotary’s investment to further impact their service to the community. The criteria used in the selection of candidates was based on service, financial need, academic record, community and/or extracurricular activities, leadership, and work experience.
