Elks Most Valuable Student
A student sponsored by Moscow Elks Lodge #249 has won a national award in the 2018 Elks Most Valuable Student scholarship program.
Congratulations to Sara Whelschel.
Sara, a senior at Colfax High School, was one of 6 students recommended by our lodge for state judging and one of only 3 from the state of Idaho moving on to national judging.
Sara will receive an award of $4000 toward her college education. She joins two students representing the Boise Lodge and one from the Yakima Lodge as the only scholarship winners from Idaho and Eastern Washington this year.
We are proud to say that Sara will join four other students representing Moscow Elks #249, currently attending college on $4000 scholarships either as winners in the Most Valuable Student competition or as Legacy Award winners. That’s a $20,000 return on our ENF contributions in scholarships alone. We also have a Legacy Award applicant in this years competition.
