Three high school seniors have been awarded scholarships by the Fairfield Rotary Foundation.

This year’s recipients of the annual awards are: Brendan Blees, Fairfield Prep; Melanie Ambler, Joel Barlow High School in Redding, and Victoria Trentini, Kolbe Cathedral High School in Bridgeport.

The foundation annually awards up to six scholarships, ranging between $3,000 and $7,500, to high school seniors who “have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community service and exemplify the Rotary motto, Service Above Self,” according to the announcement. Scholastic achievement is also considered.

To be eligible, a student must be a senior in good standing at a Fairfield or Bridgeport secondary school or Joel Barlow High School. Seniors who live in Fairfield, Bridgeport, Easton or Redding but attend schools outside of those communities are also eligible. They should plan to attend a four-year college, a two-year college or a post-secondary trade or vocational/technical school with a program of study of one year or longer.

Immediate relatives of Rotarians are not eligible for these scholarships.
