The Rotary Club of Westlake/Bay Village has had a long-standing tradition of supporting a graduating senior from each of the club’s high schools with a scholarship of $2,500. Participants are required to complete an application and write an essay pertaining to their plans for college and beyond. 

While the Rotary received many applications this year, two students stood out among the rest. Allison Rizea from Westlake High School and Laura Wilson from Bay High School were each awarded a scholarship. The awards were presented at the weekly Rotary breakfast meeting at the Westwood County Club. 

These scholarships are only one of many of the local and worldwide programs supported by Rotary, whose mission is “Service Above Self.”  New members are always welcome. Please contact Marie Marrali at for more information on joining Rotary.
