The Douglas County Republican Women announced seven Douglas High School seniors received $1,000 scholarships.

Each student submitted an essay describing why they thought they should be a scholarship beneficiary. A team of Republican Women led by Brenda Robertson, read all the essays and then interviewed the students on campus before making the final selection.

At an awards ceremony, the winners were announced, and each club-foundation presented the student with their grant. 

The following students were selected from a total of 26 applicants:

Mateo Esquivel who will be attending Embry Riddle Aeronautical University majoring in Aeronautical Science, Xaraya Fristed who will be continuing her education at Idaho Horseshoeing School, Kyla Frueh who will be attending UNR in the fall majoring in Nursing, Jack Ross who will also be attending UNR majoring in Mechanical Engineering, Bennett Schoenemann who is going to the University of Arizona to major in architecture, Reese Torres who will be going to UNLV to major in hospitality-PGA golf management, and Liam Wall who will be attending Westmont College majoring in applied mathematics.

The Republican Women hold an annual fundraising event for scholarship funds and was able to offer seven scholarships this year.
