LULING — United Way of St. Charles awarded “Live United” scholarships to six St. Charles Parish high school graduates.

The recipients received a one-time award of $750 in recognition of their commitment to community service and the positive impact they have had on the St. Charles Parish community through their leadership and service. The award is intended to help defray the costs of educational expenses for attending a post-secondary program of their choice.

“The United Way of St. Charles ‘Live United’ Scholarship Committee was very impressed with all the applicants who applied for the scholarship this year. These young adults demonstrate exactly what it means to Live United through their volunteerism and giving back to the community they live in,” stated Sara Miller, UWSC Volunteer and Event Administrator.

Three “Live United” scholarships were awarded to students at both Destrehan and Hahnville high schools.

The students who received scholarships from Destrehan High School include Courtney Rome, daughter of Roxanne Brady of Norco; Macy Terrebone, daughter of Mona and Brett Terrebone of Destrehan; and Samantha Clement, daughter of Eddie and Marian Clement of Destrehan.

The Hahnville High School students who received “Live United” scholarships include Candice LaRosee, daughter of Maureen and George Rollin on Luling; Alexandra Wolkart, daughter of Jeff and Terrell Wolkart of Luling; and Brittany Bourgeois, daughter of Cliff and Beth Bourgeois of Des Allemands.

The United Way of St. Charles Staff and Board of Directors congratulates these scholarship recipients and all of the high school graduates this year.
