The Zonta Club of Hilton Head Island awarded Forest Richardson of Hilton Head Preparatory School and Adriana Mendoza and Kellee Vest of Hilton Head Christian Academy as the recipients of the Club's 2014 Z-Club Scholarships. The recipients were honored at the club's May luncheon.
Each Z-Club Scholarship is a college scholarship established by the Zonta Club of Hilton Head Island to recognize senior high school students who are members of a local Z-Club, a club on school campuses or in the community that allows members to develop leadership skills, explore career alternatives and increase their international awareness and understanding through service. Those selected for the scholarships must demonstrate leadership in their school and community.
Scholarships awarded this year totaled $2,500. Since 1982, the Zonta Club of Hilton Head has presented young women who have demonstrated leadership in their schools with more than $60,000 in scholarships.
