Each year, the Rotary Club of Beaufort awards a $1,000 scholarship to a student who has chosen to further his or her education via technical training.
Alyson Boggess has been selected this year based on the strength of her application. Boggess had received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and was also a licensed cosmetologist, but felt she could help people more as a nurse.
With the support of her husband, a Port Royal police officer, and her three children, she will begin studying nursing at the Technical College of the Lowcountry.
The vocational scholarship is just one of the recognition programs hosted by the Rotary Club of Beaufort, the oldest of Beaufort’s three Rotary clubs. The Club also recognizes outstanding military service members, outstanding law enforcement officers, and high school seniors for college scholarships.
