The deadline for submission of scholarship applications for the Old Foster Community Museum Association, VFW Auxiliary, and Rosenberg Lions Club is Friday, May 29.

Applications need not be received by this date, only postmarked, but don’t delay.

Since the museum and auxiliary applications cannot be picked up from the school, applications are to be mailed to Vickie Lynn Tonn at 7706 Pecan Lake Circle, Richmond 77406.

Lions Club applications also postmarked by May 15 can either be mailed to Tonn or to the Lions post office address as listed on the Lions Club application.

Regarding the submission of the “official transcript,” these can be obtained by contacting the applicable career counselor who will obtain the necessary documents from the registrar.

This can be done in a couple of ways.

The counselo/registrar can send to you which then can be sent to Vickie or, if applications have already been mailed, Vickie will contact the counselor directly and obtain the documentation. Either way, this documentation is required for consideration of a scholarship.

Applications need to be completed as required with a few exceptions.

Specific to the museum and auxiliary scholarship application, face-to-face interviews will not be conducted.

However, questions via email, may be submitted to the applicant which would normally be covered in the interview session.

Specific to the Lions scholarship application, “Applicant Appraisal” Section, seniors can ask an “adult appraiser” to fill this out via email to student and include in the mailed application or have the “adult appraiser” email the required info directly to Tonn.

No personal signature will be required.

However, the name of the person and contact information must be included.

Sadly, recognition ceremonies for the recipients of these scholarships will most likely not be held.

However, each winner will receive recognition via newspaper and social media.

Since this is an unusual year, Tonn says every concession will be made to assist each student in the scholarship process.

“No virus will hinder our LCISD students from receiving scholarships,” Tonn pledged.

“These programs have been in place for years and will continue for many more years. This year may be different, but it will happen nonetheless.”

Have questions? Email Tonn at vickietonn@yahoo.com and she will be more than happy to help applicants through this altered process.
