The Purdue Club of Boone County scholarship committee has selected three $1,000 scholarship winners (one each from Lebanon High School, Western Boone High School and Zionsville Community High School). Recipients of those scholarships will be announced this month at each school’s awards night.
We are looking for Purdue Club of Boone County members to donate PASE memberships (see http://purdue.imodules.com/s/1461/2column.aspx?sid=1461&gid=1001&pgid=1084 for more information) to be presented to each of the scholarship recipients. If you would like to donate a $25 PASE membership, please contact Chuck Schmal (email@example.com).
We are looking for Purdue alumni volunteers to present the Purdue Club of Boone County scholarships to the scholarship recipients at Western Boone and Lebanon on the Honors Nights for each school.

If you can help, please contact Duane Fortune, our Purdue Club of Boone County Scholarship Chair, as soon as possible. Thank you!
