Staff reports

The Topaz Sertoma Club recently awarded two $500 scholarships to Douglas High School seniors.

One scholarship was presented to Mathew Norberg of Minden to assist in his studies at Western Nevada Community College, where he is enrolled in the automotive mechanics school.

Marciano Garcia of Gardnerville was the recipient of the other scholarship. He will major in graphic arts at Southern Oregon University.

“We feel both of these students were very deserving of our selections,” said Bob Burton, vice president of the club.

“We wish to thank Heidi Rasmussen, career information technician at Douglas High School, for her interest and help in supplying our club with a number of applications for scholarships. Her help in guiding us in our selections was invaluable,” Burton said.
