The Exeter Community Service Guild donated $3,000 to the education of some deserving students last Thursday, May 13.
Kandi Grady, Aaron Henderson and Hollie Hellwig each received a $1,000 scholarship from the guild which has presented students with scholarships for 15 years.
Committee member Norma Landers said they choose the most deserving students who excel in school. They also look for those students who may have the greatest need.
This is the first year that the guild presented three students with scholarships, they usually chose only two.
Landers said the committee couldn't choose between the three. This is also the first year that a male student, Henderson, was given a scholarship.
Henderson will be attending College of the Sequoias and majoring in ag business. He is the son of Dave and Debbie Henderson.
Grady plans on attending Fresno Pacific University and majoring in psychology. She is the daughter of Lynn Grady.
Hellwig will also attend COS and plans on majoring in nursing. She is the daughter of Tammy Hellwig.
Scholarship committee members included Landers, Barbara Henderson and Peggy Stoltz.
The three members read through 14 applications and interviewed seven students before deciding on the lucky three.
