RACINE — Over $24,000 in scholarships were awarded recently to the 2022 graduates of Southern Local High School during the annual Racine Community Organization (RACO) Banquet.

Students’ planned majors were diverse. The medical field included nursing, pre-med, and biology sciences. Several plan to major in the science of mathematics and electrical engineering, others in education, business, land surveying, and game design.

Parents, relatives, friends, and presenters looked proudly at the group of young graduates as they received the 2022 scholarships. The ceremony was preceded by a dinner provided by RACO.

Melanie Weese officiated the presentation of scholarships, and said, “There are lots of bright futures out there.”
