In 2019, the Lucketts Ruritan Club presented scholarships totaling $14,400 to four Lucketts area students during the annual award ceremony at Tuscarora High School. The Lucketts Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to Lucketts graduating seniors who have chosen to extend their education and have excelled in their academic and service endeavors.
This is the 31st year the Club has awarded scholarships to deserving seniors. Awardees are selected based on academic achievement, school and community service, the student’s essay on his/her future goals and plan to achieve them, and letters of recommendation. The Club received 12 applications this year. The four recipients were judged Outstanding and Excellent. Receiving the scholarships this year were:
Katelyn Geibel, Tuscarora’s 2019 Valedictorian will attend Virginia Tech and hopes to use her aerospace engineering degree to explore opportunities in space.
Emily Kessler is headed to American University in the fall and will work towards a degree in International Studies.
Ally Shaffer is also headed to Virginia Tech and was drawn to the school’s service orientation and agricultural setting. She is interested in both national security and marketing.
Nicole Shea will be attending her first choice of Mary Washington where her interests are varied in general but pediatric medicine in specific.
In addition to these four scholarships, the Lucketts Ruritan Club provides Citizenship Awards to each of the three schools serving Lucketts families. Spencer Anderson received the Citizenship Award for Tuscarora at the same ceremony.
Georgia Malik for Smarts Mill and Ella Quist for Lucketts Elementary also received Citizenship awards at each school’s annual awards ceremony as well. School administration and faculty decide the Citizenship Awards.
