Englewood Lions Club awards scholarships

This past summer, the Englewood Lions Club presented $1,000 scholarships to two graduating seniors of Lemon Bay High School - Lexi Odenbach and Harley Rusher. The scholarship winners were selected by a committee of Lions Club members for their academic achievements, work ethic and commitment to the community. Lexi Odenbach graduated from Lemon Bay with a weighted GPA of 3.7 while volunteering over 600 hours at Englewood Community Hospital and Kids Needs of Englewood, all while working 10-20 hours per week at part-time jobs. She also participated in soccer and track & field and served four years as a varsity student trainer for the football team. Lexi said about the Lions scholarship, “I am so thankful for the very generous scholarship! It has honestly helped me so much already and I just started school! I am attending the State College of Florida located in Venice, majoring in Business Entrepreneurship.” Lexi hopes to work in her career to help keep families together and build strong relationships. Harley Rusher graduated with a weighted GPA of 4.3, is a member of the National Honor Society and completed more than 400 hours of Community Service during his four years at Lemon Bay. Harley lettered in varsity track & field and soccer and also volunteered as a coach and referee for area youth soccer teams. After the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School, Harley built a biography of one of the victims and presented it at a Lemon Bay High School memorial service for the victims. Harley is attending the University of Florida majoring in Political Science and one day hopes to attend law school. The Englewood Lions Club has been serving this area since 1952. During the twelve months ending June 30th, the Englewood Lions Club donated more than $9,000 to charities and other non-profit organizations and hope to do similar giving in the coming year. For more information or to get involved with the Englewood Lions Club, please contact Club President Kathy at 698•7508 or visit www.englewoodfl-lionsclub.com.
