Rotarians present college scholarships

May 17, 2007

Albany -- Albany business leaders give thousands of dollars in college scholarships to sponsor some of the finest students in Dougherty County.

 The Albany Rotary Club presented their annual scholarship awards to one top senior from each of the four Dougherty County public schools, and the three private high schools.

The students were selected based on their high academic status in their class, for school leadership, and service to the community.

Marcus Hines was the Scholarship winner for Albany High School. Hines scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT. Hines said "to get something from the Albany Rotary Club is sorta like this big push, to know that Albany is behind me."

Dr. Michael Daugherty said "Albany Rotary Club wants to be involved in their education process, and make sure they go on to do great things in their future."

All seven of the selected students were presented with $1,200 scholarships, to help them with their academic expenses.
