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 lit­tle­jmemo­rial@gmail.com.

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.
