Bloomfield Rotary Club awards scholarships to top students

Friday, May 4, 2012

More than $12,000 in scholarship money was distributed to Bloomfield Junior-Senior High School's top academic finishers during Thursday's Rotary Club Honors Night Dinner. The event, which Rotary President and Greene Circuit Court Judge Erik "Chip" Allen called "probably our marquee event for the year" recognized about 50 students for their academic achievements. Funds for the scholarships come from an array of sources, including Rotarian fundraisers such as March's chili supper and good-natured fines imposed upon members, as well as private endowments from an array of past and present local luminaries.
