Nine Jessamine County high school seniors each received $1,000 college scholarships from the Nicholasville Rotary Club at a ceremony during the June luncheon meeting.
Scholarship awards were based on student achievements inside and outside the classroom, as well as the students' embodiment of the rotary "service above self" motto. Funds for the scholarship are raised through an annual pancake breakfast and individual member donations.
The Nicholasville United Methodist Church Manna Ministry serves hot meals to the community from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at 303 West Maple Street in Nicholasville. For information about the free meals or to volunteer, call (859) 885-4481.
