Recipient’s Name Member Name Member is from Local
Charla Mayo Jodi Bullock 307CO Clark County 

A Note from Charla

First and foremost, I would like to thank Council 2 for this scholarship award. I cannot express how much this means to me and my family. I have been accepted into the honors college this fall at Washington State University where I will be majoring in Animal Sciences/Pre-Veterinarian. While my mom works in Clark County, WA, we reside in Oregon. The annual scholarship of $5,000 greatly reduces my out-of-state tuition. Thanks to your scholarship foundation I no longer need to take out a loan for my freshman year of college.
Again, Thank you!!!

Charla Mayo
