Three local high school seniors have been awarded $10,000 scholarships by the Rotary Club of Brentwood Tennessee. The annual scholarships are created in conjunction with a grant from Rotary District 6760 (which includes 62 clubs and 3,500 community leaders), in Middle and West Tennessee.The scholarships strengthen the Rotary Club’s educational commitment to Brentwood High School, John Overton High School and Ravenswood High School. Students at the three schools began applying for the 2020 scholarships last March. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants needed to have a "B" average or higher, be graduating in the spring, and going on to a 4-year college in the fall.
