Seniors STRIVE toward Rotary scholarship awards
Fifteen seniors at New Richmond High School were awarded $5,800 in scholarships from New Richmond Rotary Club for bettering their GPAs this year.
Normally the club gives out about $3,000 in scholarship money, said Paula Gretzlock, high school counselor.
The scholarships are part of the STRIVE program, a program designed to encourage students to improve their grade point average by at least half a letter grade. To qualify, seniors needed to start with a GPA at or below 3.5.
