Spotlight on Scholarships

For the second consecutive year, the Kiwanis Club of Homestead-South Dade, one of South Florida’s most active community service organizations, is including technical and trade school scholarships—along with traditional college scholarships—as part of their annual scholarship program.

“We certainly want to stress the importance of technical and trade school education, in addition to the traditional emphasis on college” said Mia

DeVane, chairperson of the scholarship committee. “The pandemic showed us the importance of skilled, trained tradespeople and we believe that high school seniors who want to learn a trade should have the opportunity to receive funds. Not everyone is focusing on college.”

This year, the Club is expected to award several scholarships with a March 31 deadline for applying.
