UWSC Awards LIVE UNITED Scholarships to High School Seniors

United Way of St. Charles awarded LIVE UNITED scholarships to eight St. Charles Parish graduating high school seniors on June 5, 2014.

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.

“This is the fifth year United Way of St. Charles has offered the LIVE UNITED Scholarship, and it continues to grow. United Way of St. Charles is 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, Hahnville and St. Charles Catholic High Schools. The students who received scholarships from Hahnville High School include Matthew Cheramie, Kaylie Fabre, Brenna Vial, and Bailey Wilson. Destrehan High School students Sean Mathieu, Paige Priest, and Marcella Saavedra received a LIVE UNITED scholarship, as well as Lynleigh Landry of St. Charles Catholic High School.

The United Way of St. Charles Staff and Board of Directors congratulates these scholarship recipients and all of the 2014 high school graduates.
