(KAIR)--Nine Atchison students are awarded scholarships, with the partnership between two local foundations to thank for the funds.

The 2022 Clubs for Kids and Joseph K. Julo Memorial Scholarship Recipients are awarded through the Clubs for Kids Foundation, established in 2007 through, what a release says was “the vision of former local businessman Joseph Julo.” The release explains that “in 2008, the Foundation began an educational scholarship program for eligible 10th through 12th grade students in high schools of Atchison County.”

Announcement of the scholarships was made through a release issued by the Atchison Area Community Foundation, described as “a source of funding for local nonprofits and public entities.” Clubs for Kids is a fundholder of AACF.

Awarded $1,000 scholarships “to pursue their higher education goals” are Katherine Harris, of Atchison High School; Blair Taylor of Maur Hill-Mount Academy; James Madden of Maur Hill-Mount Academy; Maci Behrens of the Atchison County Community High School; Madilynne Bruce, of Atchison High School; and Christine Parks of Atchison High School.

Three others, Ashton Jolly of the Atchison County Community High School, Alice McConnell Curry, and Sydney Snowden, both of Maur Hill-Mount Academy, are each awarded a $2,0000 Joseph K. Julo Memorial Scholarship.

Including 2022, Clubs for Kids has awarded 141 scholarships to Atchison County students totaling $133,500.

The foundation funds these programs through the annual “Clubs for Kids Golf Tournament” along with donated funds.

Clubs for Kids Foundation Board of Directors Member, and nephew of Joe Julo, Mike Julo, said, in the release that THROUGH the “consistent support from many business owners, volunteers, and local donors, [the Foundation] is honored and grateful to continue the legacy” of founder Joe Julo. Mike Julo added that the best investment for the future” is providing scholarships to Atchison area youth, saying that offering the “resources through the great game of golf is precisely what Joe [Julo] intended when he started” the organization.
