The Forsythe Scholarships, named after a prominent member of this club, was awarded to  Patrick Mazzeo, (Beaufort Academy), Maria Cooler (Beaufort High School), and Natalie Alvarez (Governor’s School). The winners each received a $1,300 scholarship.

The Jim Law Memorial Scholarship Awards, in the amount of $2,200, was established in memory of Father Jim Law, a highly respected local Episcopal clergyman and avid golfer. The money is raised by an annual golf fundraising tournament. The winners were  Rebecca Strawn (Beaufort Academy) and Illyona Johnstone (Battery Creek High School).

The club also annually awards a scholarship to a student who has chosen to further his or her education via technical training in today’s technology-based workforce. The scholarship of $1,000 will assist the student as he or she pursues an education at a post-secondary technical school, college or university. The 2014 winner is Kacey Dalrymple (Beaufort High School).

MILITARY AWARDS

In recognition of the special relationship that exists between the military and the city, the Rotary Club of Beaufort annually sponsors  a “Military Persons of the Year” Award to honor members of the Armed  Forces stationed in the Beaufort area for their outstanding  contribution and involvement in military and local civic activities.

Each honoree is nominated as most deserving by their respective commanders from among the many military personnel stationed at our nearby bases. The awardees are given an engraved plaque and a check  to mark their achievement.

The 2014 winners are, from left: HH1 Joshua Eubank (US Naval Hospital Beaufort),  Sgt. Damian Garcia (Parris Island),  Sgt. Justin Wagner (Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort).
