Masons confer scholarship on Eaton

Staff reports

At a recent weekly luncheon, the Masonic Lodges of Carson Valley awarded a $500 scholarship to Mary “Kate” Eaton. This check will help her offset the cost of her second semester at Western Nevada Community College.

Eaton, who is studying for a degree in business, made the Dean’s Honor List for the 2000 fall semester.

Members of the Masonic 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 seventh year the group has conferred a scholarship on an area students.
