GKWC announces scholarship deadline for graduating seniors

KILLINGTON—The Greater Killington Women’s Club (GKWC) sponsors two annual $1,000 awards which are given to graduating high school seniors from the towns of Killington or Pittsfield (who attended for at least the last two years of high school). The application deadline for the Community Service Award is Thursday April 15, 2021.

The Pat Zack Community Service Award is named in honor of the club member who originally started this award program. It is awarded to the Killington or Pittsfield high school senior who has demonstrated the most sincere dedication to community service and volunteerism within our local community. The applicant will be selected based on volunteer work, community service, extracurricular activities, and dedication to others.

Applicants for this award do not necessarily need to be pursuing higher education post-graduation. Those entering the military or workforce are also eligible to apply. Instructions and an application for the 2020 Community Service Award can be downloaded from the club’s website at swcvt.com.

Completed applications must be postmarked no later than Thursday, April 15. A committee of the club will blindly review all applications and select a winner.

The second award is the Sherburne Academic Scholarship which is presented to the Woodstock Union High School graduating senior from either the towns of Killington or Pittsfield who has demonstrated the highest weighted grade point average. This award is determined by the school guidance counselor and helps to fund this student’s pursuit of higher education.

If members of the community wish to support these scholarship and award programs, please forward donations to the GKWC, P.O. Box 68, Killington VT 05751. Contributions may be tax deductible, please check with your financial advisor.

The GKWC is a civic organization founded in Killington over 50 years ago. In more than a half century of service to the Killington community, the club has given away over $100,000 to local charitable organizations, schools and non-profits.

For more information about the club, please go to their website at swcvt.com or like and follow them on their Facebook page.
