Leona Valley Sertoma Scholarship Program Applications for 2018 are here!
It’s that time of year again, when another group of young adults will transition from high school and go on to college, or in to the workplace. The members of Leona Valley Sertoma believe in the importance of higher education and want to encourage all our local students to continue their education after graduating from high school. The Leona Valley Sertoma Scholarship Program identifies and rewards local students who have shown personal and intellectual qualities through academic achievement, as well as participation and leadership in extracurricular and community activities. Leona Valley Sertoma has given out almost $50,000.00, in scholarships since 1999.

I like to think every Sertoma member is a role model for what it means to be involved in your community. They exhibit leadership qualities when seeking out opportunities to better their communities through such things as identifying needs in the community and by their follow-thru in participating in the many events and programs developed and sponsored by the organization. Many of the events they sponsor are fundraisers that provide the money for their programs, like the Scholarship Program.
Sertoma membership is open to anyone interested in making a difference and improving the quality of life for their community. As a member of Leona Valley Sertoma you would be joining with like-minded people in developing and carrying out a variety of programs and events that truly can make a difference for the people in your community, the people you call friends and neighbors. Sertoma International also has a program called Serteens, which is intended to instill the same qualities in our young people and give them the kind of leadership qualities that can serve them well as they move on to become adults. There is not currently a Serteens group associated with Leona Valley Sertoma, but if there were, that would, I should think, make filling out one part of the Leona Valley Sertoma Scholarship Application a lot easier.
