Application for Laptop Scholarship Award for High School Seniors Exemplary Community Service Opens

Portland, Oregon – THE PENINSULA ODD FELLOWS LODGE 2019 LAPTOP AWARD PROGRAM FOR LOCAL GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH EXEMPLARY COMMUNITY SERVICE OPENS FOR APPLICATIONS

Peninsula Odd Fellows Lodge #128 awards laptop computers to graduating seniors who have exemplary records of community service. “Unlike other scholarships that are based on grades or sport capability, the only factor required for application for this award is the senior’s community service.” says Stephana Johnson, a Peninsula Odd Fellow Lodge Committee Member.

On Friday, March 1, 2019, Peninsula Odd Fellows will begin accepting applications from the Portland and Vancouver Metro area senior high school students and teachers who wish to nominate a student. Applications will be accepted through April 15, 2019.

The Peninsula Odd Fellows has served North Portland since 1895, “we are dedicated to improving our city, and uplifting it’s people,” says long time member Joan Sheer. A lot has changed since 1895, but our commitment to serving the community has not.”

Students may apply for this year’s award through their school or by visiting the website of the Peninsula Odd Fellows. Awards are based on community service not on academics.  http://www.keepportlandodd.com/Laptop-Award.html
