By Scholarship Chairman, 05/07/20, 11:15AM CDT


Five talented LHGCL players capture the awards

Suspended League Play due to the pandemic did not halt the Scholarship Committee’s efforts in reviewing over 60 applicants this year. Final interviews took place via zoom with our distinguished panel where each of these five outstanding young ladies were awarded scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $6,500, totaling $17,000. The $5,500 increase in our awards this year was made possible via proceeds from our Annual LHGCL Winter College Showcase.

Many factors were considered such as Academic Performance, Essay, Community Involvement and more. Congratulations to each of the following talented Lake Highlands Girls Classic League Players:
