Rotary accepting scholarship applications

The Shawnee Rotary Club is now accepting applications for its 2013 community service scholarships.

Three scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to qualifying high school seniors who either reside in the city of Shawnee or who attend a public or private school there.

Applications are available from school counselors and on the club’s website,, under Projects and Service. Applications can also be obtained by contacting Calvin McBride at 913-432-9691 or Completed applications should be sent to McBride at 10112 W. 70th St., Merriam KS 66203, postmarked or hand-delivered no later than March 2.
