Twenty deserving high school seniors were awarded scholarships towards their freshman year in college thanks to the city’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee.

For the past 21 years, the scholarship program has served the students in the community. With the financial assistance of the Coral Springs Community Chest, Dari Artist and other individual donors, they have been able to supplement the scholarship fund further through fund-raising efforts throughout the year. The students, who were selected on the basis of financial need and quality of community involvement, were interviewed by a panel made up of representatives of the Community Chest and MLK. Committee.
