Three Lakes Women's club awards $6,000 in scholarships Wednesday
THREE LAKES - Students often struggle to pay for college. The Three Lakes Woman's Club is doing its part to help graduating high school seniors.

The club hosted a tea party to give out $6,000 in scholarships to five young women graduating from Three Lakes High School.

President of the club Rosie Obukowicz says the application was quite the process.

"We do look at all aspects of a girl's life. They fill out an application and list the clubs, activities, offices and awards they've been given. This is pretty extensive, they really have to put out an effort to get this," said Obukowicz.

Three Lakes senior and scholarship winner Kerri Seyfert says she needs all the financial help she can get.

"College is extremely expensive so it'll be a great help for me. I'm hoping to go to Hillsdale College if I do get enough financial aid and scholarships," said Obukowicz.

The club raised the $6,000 by hosting a fall fashion show and other fundraisers.
