Lions Club announces it will award scholarships


KENT—The Kent Lions Club will sponsor up to three scholarships for first year college-bound students. The club offers a fourth scholarship intended for a returning college student working to enhance his or her community through leadership and volunteer service.

Applicants must live in Kent and have graduated from Kent Center School as well from one of the area high schools: Housatonic Valley Regional High School, Kent School, The Marvelwood School, South Kent School or Oliver Wolcott. The deadline for applications is May 15.

“It is such a pleasure to support young folks in their journey for learning and community service” said Bernadette Ellegard, Scholarship Committee chair. “Each year we get to meet a handful of extraordinary Kent kids!”

The local Lions Club, established in 1978, is a civic organization with 60 volunteers who gather to support the community through fundraising, awareness activities and donating time to various projects and initiatives, striving to make Kent a better place.

Lions can be seen flipping burgers at the Connecticut Antique Machinery Show, grilling dogs at the Library Family Fair, parking cars at the Polar Run, distributing safety necklaces at Halloween and flags at the Memorial Day Parade—among many other activities.
