The Arley Women's Club (AWC) Scholarship Program has been in place since 2015 with over $86,000 in scholarships to Meek High School seniors since inception. The AWC is primarily a group dedicated to community service, so the AWC Scholarship Program is structured to reflect good citizenship. Helping out in one’s own community through service can be a valuable lesson for students.
The AWC Scholarship requires a minimum of 25 hours of service during their high school career, an interview, letters of recommendation, and an essay reflecting the students’ experiences in serving others. Those receiving the scholarships from Meek High School have been exemplary in sharing their gifts of time, talents, and service, making the Arley Community a better place in which to live. They managed serving others even while maneuvering through school, work, and sports.
