Rotary Club Grant and Scholarship Recipients

The Rotary Club of Sulphur Springs met May 30, 2019, to present both grant and scholarship money to area recipients.

100% of the proceeds from Claws for a Cause 2019 were dispersed among the groups and individuals Rotary Club deemed most worthy. The 2019 event set new records for both pounds of crawfish eaten, and revenue generated. This in turn set new records for the amount of money given back to the community. These increases were most noticeable in the scholarships, where most were double, and one triple, the amount awarded last year.
