Masons award $750 scholarship

Staff reports

The Masonic Lodges of Carson Valley awarded a $750 scholarship to Mary “Kate” Eaton, a June graduate of Douglas High School. Eaton plans on attending Western Nevada Community College this fall to major in business. The scholarship award is a part of an annual scholarship sponsored by several lodges to a deserving Carson Valley student.

Members of the Mason lodges in the Valley and visitors from lodges outside the area meet every Friday at 11 a.m. at Sharkey’s Nugget in Gardnerville for an informal luncheon. Freewill contributions are taken at each luncheon to support the scholarship fund. This is the sixth year the group has conferred a scholarship on an area student.
