Rotary Club Awards Scholarship to CAHS Student

The Rotary Club of St. Thomas Sunrise has announced that the 2012 Ronald R. Magnuson Scholarship has been awarded to graduating senior Denesha Babrow of Charlotte Amalie High School. Annually, the Rotary Club of St. Thomas Sunrise awards the four year, university scholarship to a graduating St. Thomas senior who has been accepted to the University of the Virgin Islands.
This year’s recipient, Denesha Babrow, a graduating senior of Charlotte Amalie High School, wrote a compelling essay on “What is the Most Pressing Environmental Challenge Facing the Virgin Islands”.
The scholarship was established in honor of Rotary Sunrise Chapter Secretary, Ronald M. Magnuson, who maintained a deep belief and commitment to the education of young people. The scholarship pays for tuition and fees for the four years as long as the recipient remains enrolled at UVI full time and maintains a minimum grade point average of 2.5. “We are so pleased that the Rotary Club Sunrise, Magnuson Scholarship, has sponsored three students; Joseph Douglas, Aniqua Donadelle and recent UVI graduate, Angelica Claxton, to help them follow their dreams to a bright and productive future,” said Rotary Sunrise Scholarship Committee Chair Tom Bolt.
