The Key Club and Kiwanis recently awarded scholarships to two Westbrook High School students.

The service clubs awarded $1,500 to senior Hillary Knight and $500 to senior Jessica Arsenault last Thursday in recognition of their leadership and dedication to community service.

According to Key Club adviser John Bernier, Knight, 18, the president of the Key Club, increased membership to an unprecedented level and expanded the number and improved the quality of the club’s service projects.

Arsenault, 17, earned the scholarship by “selflessly giving up personal time to help others” over th past four years, Bernier said.

Recent Key Club projects include volunteering at soup kitchens and the elementary schools and handing out teddy bears to children at the Ronald McDonald House and the Barbara Bush Center.

In order to qualify for a scholarship, Bernier said, candidates must have enthusiastically participated in Key Club for at least three years and be active members in good standing.
