— The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta (JWCS) has announced that three scholarships, each in the amount of $1,000, will be awarded to local female high school seniors.

Winners will be announced the week of May 21st, 2018, with formal recognition at Sparta Day on June 2nd.

The Junior Woman’s Club of Sparta is comprised of women from Sparta and the surrounding area who have come together as friends to foster goodwill while organizing events and activities that bring our community together. Each year the JWCS raises and distributes thousands of dollars to local organizations and charities.

"The JWCS is a group of women passionate about volunteerism," said Lucy Lubertazzo, chair of Scholarship Committee. "Despite our own busy lives, we make giving back to our community a priority, and have fun doing it. We're inspired by the young women in our community who share our passion, and are pleased to be able to honor a few each year with this scholarship. We hope that with our encouragement they'll continue to give back throughout their lives."
