United Way of St. Charles Awards LIVE UNITED Scholarships

to High School Seniors



United Way of St. Charles awarded LIVE UNITED scholarships to six St. Charles Parish graduating high school seniors on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.


The recipients received a one-time cash award in recognition of their commitment to community service and the positive impact they have had on the St. Charles Parish community through their leadership and service. The award is intended to help defray educational expenses for attending a post-secondary program of their choice.


“United Way of St. Charles is proud to honor the recipients of our LIVE UNITED Scholarship. We are very happy to be able to support these students who have made such an effort to give back to their community,” stated Kacy Kernan, UWSC Director of Community Impact.


LIVE UNITED scholarships were awarded to students from Destrehan and Hahnville High Schools. The students who received scholarships from Hahnville High School include Elizabeth Keran, Madison Cancienne, and Beau Bourgeois. Destrehan High School students Rachel Marino, Reagan Pfister, and Sarah Gauthier received a LIVE UNITED scholarship as well.


The United Way of St. Charles Staff and Board of Directors congratulates these scholarship recipients and all of the 2016 high school graduates.
