Kiwanis Club awards $45,000 in scholarships

The Menlo Park Kiwanis Club has awarded $45,000 in college scholarships to 11 Menlo-Atherton High School students.

This is the 28th consecutive year that the club has supported the scholarship program, said John Martin, chairman of the Kiwanis scholarship committee.

"We hold an interview process with each student," he said. "Coming in, we have their applications and transcripts, so we knew that this year's group were all-stars in the academic playing field. The fun part of our committee is to talk to these future leaders."

Awards were given based on the student's record of community service, academic performance, and financial need. The amounts vary, usually based on financial need, Mr. Martin said.

Awards were made to Tyler Finn, Stephen Chu, Nina Lozinski, Kathleen Muenzen, Katie Woods, Yvonne Fu, Jenna Swartz, Emily Carlson, Saane Fakalata, Gabriel Estacuy, and Maddie Napel.
