The St. Bernard Chapter of the Louisiana Volunteers for Family and Community, an organization under the auspices of the LSU Agriculture Center, has awarded four (4) $1000.00 scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year to residents of St. Bernard Parish. The funds for three of these scholarships were raised from the Christmas Fashion Show Luncheon and the remaining funding came from the SBVFC Council Treasury. The recipients are Tiffani L. Poteet from Chalmette High School, John L. Scheuermann, Jr. from Holy Cross High School, and Brianna L. Brewer and Amanda E. Lauga from Cabrini High School.
Since SBVFC is an organization that seeks to promote volunteering in order “to strengthen individuals, families, and communities through education, leadership and action,” the criteria for this scholarship highly emphasized the student’s volunteer activities. We thank these high school seniors for their efforts and hope that they will continue to serve their community in the future. Each student will receive $1,000.00 to study at a Louisiana College or University or accredited Community College for the 2017-2018 school year.
