Ten Tucson-area students were awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarship money by the Rincon Rotary Club.
Each year, the club’s scholarship program honors students who have demonstrated positive citizenship, superior leadership, solid achievement in academics, and a strong motivation to community service.
Taking home scholarships, which are worth $1,000 each, are:
Justine Baccus of Sahuarita High School; Zayna Green and Helen Jones of University High School; Miguel Marquez of Marana High School; Marcos A. Moreno of Pueblo Magnet High School; Athena Roesler of St. Gregory College Preparatory School; Brittney Schneider of Sahuaro High School; Kristina Simpson of Tucson High Magnet School; Nesta Wicklund of Ironwood Hills Christian School; and Yuming Zhao of Canyon del Oro High School.
Eight of the scholarships were donated by the Rincon Rotary Foundation and two were donated in honor of a former Rincon Rotarian, Dr. David Jacoby, by his wife Amber Jacoby and his colleagues at Tucson Dermatology.
