LULING — Ten recent high school graduates earned some extra money for college as recipients of United Way of St. Charles LIVE UNITED scholarships.

The recipients received a one-time cash award this summer of $1,000 apiece 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.

Scholarship students from Hahnville High School include Conrad Alleman II, Ra’janae Morris, Lauren Watson, Alexis Tamplain, Alexis Caillet and Kamryn Keller.

Scholarship students from Destrehan High School include Claire Dantin, Kalyn Green, Elizabeth Kelly and Emily Schexnayder.

Director of Community Impact Kacy Kernan said United Way of St. Charles is proud to honor the recipients.

“We are very happy to be able to support these students who have made such an effort to give back to their community,” Kernan said.

The award is intended to help defray educational expenses for attending a post-secondary program of their choice.
