Congratulations to the 2016 Monks Service Scholarship winners. We enjoyed meeting our five finalists and hearing their stories at our awards banquet. They shared their experience with community service and the impact it has made on their lives and the lives of the people they are helping. We clearly met a group of amazing, high-achieving kids who will continue to contribute to our community in college and beyond.
