Lake Cities Chamber Announces Scholarship Recipients

Lake Cities Chamber Announces Scholarship Recipients

Every year at the annual banquet, the Lake Cities Chamber of Commerce awards scholarships to three deserving Lake Cities high school seniors. This year, three Corinth residents were awarded a $500 scholarship each to go toward their upcoming college education. In order to be considered, students had to be Lake Cities residents with a good great point average and must have demonstrated participation in community, employment or school activities.

Kyle Anderson
Kyle has lived in Corinth all her life with her parents and older brother. Her hobbies include watching movies, reading and playing with her lovable dogs, Moose and Vixen. She was also a dancer for 10 years. Along with being strong in the classroom, Kyle’s focus has always been on helping those in need. She continually volunteers her time to the community while also being an athletic trainer/team manager at Guyer High School. Kyle will major in Biochemistry at Texas A&M University with aspirations of one day becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

Riley Van Steward
Riley also lives in Corinth with his family. He’s ranked No. 1 in his class and his hobbies include speech and debate as well as taking part in theater and various community outreach programs. He’s currently the managing director for Pencils Pending, a nonprofit organization that provides school supplies for underprivileged children. If that weren’t enough, Riley plans to double major in Linguistics and Visual and Media Studies at Duke University. His ultimate goal is to graduate from law school having absorbed all the information he can on intellectual property law. 

Sarah Vetters
Sarah and her family have lived in Corinth for eight years. She is ranked 13th in her class and has been voted varsity soccer captain for both her junior and senior years. Her hobbies include playing soccer, drawing, and hanging out with friends. Sarah also loves giving back to the community as much as she can and wants to be a nurse so she can continue helping those in need. She plans to attend either Oklahoma State or Texas Woman’s University in Denton.
