(Newburgh, Indiana) – Every year, Kiwanis Club of Historic Newburgh awards 2 Scholarships from our local organization to Castle High School students. The 3rd Scholarship comes from the Indiana Foundation, but is presented by the local Club at their school’s awards night. Each Club in the Indiana District submits a candidate to the Foundation and only one is selected annually. Our Newburgh Club candidate has been selected the last 2 years.
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Internationally Members stage nearly 150,000 service projects and raise nearly $100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. Kiwanis clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time.
