While the COVID-19 situation may have interrupted the school year along with many other facets of our lives, it didn't stop local students from achieving academic excellence and earning scholarships for their future educational endeavors. 

The Canby Rotary Foundation awarded 26 scholarships totaling $33,000 for the coming school year.  Since 2000, the foundation has awarded 337 scholarships totaling over $310,000.

The foundation administers the Canby Telephone Association (DBA DirectLink) scholarship fund, awarding seven scholarships for $1,000 each. This year's recipients are:

  • Rachel Bigej
  • Katie Mull
  • Jordan Spencer
  • Jera Warrington 
  • Trevor Taylor
  • Josie Warren
  • Claire Wright

For the fifth year, DirectLink has provided funds for the Don Peterson Memorial Scholarship. Don was a founding member of the Canby Rotary Foundation and served on the DirectLink Board of Directors for many years. This year's recipient of the $1,500 scholarship is Karly Biera. 

Congratulations to all of this year's scholarship winners!
