This past week, the Des Moines Dollars for Scholars held their annual reception at the Yacht Club to recognize local students who were awarded scholarship money. This annual event is the culmination of a process that matches local college-bound students with Des Moines-area organizations that provide scholarships.
The Rotary Club of Des Moines awarded academic scholarships to Natalie Welch of Mt. Rainier High School and Jonathan Mountford of Kennedy High School.
Des Moines Dollars for Scholars is a locally operated and supported, nonprofit, tax-exempt scholarship foundation. Operated by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, the purpose of Dollars for Scholars is to expand access to educational opportunities by involving and assisting our community in the support of students and in the encouragement of educational achievement.
