The Madera Breakfast Lions Club honored the recipients of their annual scholarship awards to the club’s meeting at Madera Golf Course late last week. The eight winners and their parents were treated to breakfast by their hosts.
This year’s $500 scholarship award winners are: Ryan Hill, Kaycie Simpson, Lora Whitaker, Jovany Martinez and Rida Qaiser of Madera High and Teddy Hansen, Cristal Rivera and Micaela Torres of Madera South High.
Breakfast Lion president Greg Willet recognized each recipient, who then introduced their parents to the club members. Each scholarship winner gave a brief synopsis Thursday of their future plans and the college they will be attending.
The Breakfast Lions Club has awarded scholarships to local high school students for 25 years and annually hosts the winners and their families at a meeting prior to graduation. Many students have kept in touch with the club while attending college.
