Memorial announces scholarship opportunities
STEVENSVILLE — Following a golf tournament held in August at Queenstown Harbor Golf Course, the Julianne Rosela Memorial fund announced it will award two $5,000 scholarships to Kent Island High School seniors who will be graduating in June 2017.
To be eligible for consideration, students must demonstrate good academic standing, and leadership and involvement in community services. To apply, students are required to submit a scholarship application package by April 15. The scholarship applications can be found on the Julianne Rosela Memorial webpage at http://chesa peakecharities.org/ fund/julianne-rosela -memorial or by contacting Carrie Rosela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At age 7, Julianne Rosela lost her life in a boating accident. The Kent Island community surrounded and supported the Rosela family as they dealt with their loss. The family established the Julianne Rosela Memorial to preserve Julianne’s memory and to give back to the community in her name.
“We are dedicated to raise money in Julianne’s name, to provide scholarships for Kent Island High School seniors and provide continued support for victims and families of tragedy,” said Carrie Rosela, Julianne’s mother.
The second annual Julianne Rosela Memorial golf tournament is scheduled for Aug. 25 at Queenstown Harbor Golf Course.
The Julianne Rosela Memorial is a component fund of Chesapeake Charities, a community foundation. Donations can be made on the Chesapeake Charities webpage at http:// chesapeakecharities.org/fund/julianne-rosela-memorial.
Julianne Rosela, in whose memory two $5,000 scholarships will be granted to Kent Island High School students, died at age 7 from a boating accident.
