The end of another school year is upon
us, and for area high school seniors,
it has been filled with excitement for
graduation and for some, receiving
On May 30, the Rotary Club of
Manassas held its annual scholarship
awards luncheon at the Center for the
Arts in Old Town Manassas. About 75
people, including Rotary members, the
nine scholarship recipients, and their
families, were in attendance.
Lou Maroon academic scholarships of
$2,500 each were presented to four
local students. Past president Don
Kline explains that Mr. Maroon was a
well-known and beloved Prince William
citizen and businessman who served
on the Manassas City Council and of
course in the Rotary Club. Soon after
his death in 1993, the club launched an
annual golf tournament named in his
honor. The proceeds from this event
fund the scholarships and much more.
Because Mr. Maroon had a particular
interest in mathematics, scholarship
recipients are selected for excellence

Scarton, Osbourn High School.
In addition, the Rotary Club of
Manassas presented five $2,500
scholarships to students pursuing
careers in vocational or technical
fields. Vocational committee chair
Beverly Hess explains that students
vie for this scholarship through an in-
depth application process. Completed
applications are reviewed by a
committee, which normally selects four
winners. However, Beverly explains
that they decided to award a fifth
scholarship this year because they had
five equally deserving applicants.
Congratulations to this year's
honorees: Marco Escobar Brizuela,
Stonewall Jackson High School; and
Nicole Gonzalez, Everilvo Hernandez
Morales, Maria Pineda, and George
Riley, all from Osbourn High School.
The Rotary Club of Manassas consists
of approximately 60 professionals,
spanning multiple industries and
specialties, who come together to serve
the community. Plans are underway
for the 25th annual Lou Maroon
Golf Tournament on September 17
at Evergreen Country Club (15900
Berkeley Drive, Haymarket). As noted
above, proceeds from this event allow
the club to make significant donations
to area charities, including SERVE and
Habitat for Humanity of Prince William.
To date, the Manassas Rotary Club has
made financial donations totaling more
than $750,000 to worthy causes.
The group meets every Wednesday
to address various community
service needs with a special focus
on children's health and education.
Meetings are held at 12:15 p.m. at the
Center for the Arts (9419 Battle Street),
and guests are welcome. Being a
Rotarian offers numerous benefits,
including networking, developing new
skills, effecting change within the
community, and understanding and
impacting international humanitarian
issues. To learn more, visit
