The Rotary Club of Swarthmore selected two Strath Haven High School students as recipients of the 2016 Women’s and Rotary Clubs of Swarthmore scholarships.

Sameen Oboudiyat of Wallingford and Maddie Stabinski of Swarthmore were chosen among applicants who demonstrated both need and a strong record of community service, consistent with Rotary’s service orientation. Each of the winners received an award of $5,000 towards college tuition — Sameen at Penn State University, and Maddie at Johns Hopkins University.

Residual funds from the defunct Women’s Club of Swarthmore were discovered last year and dedicated to funding these scholarships, with making possible an increase in the size of each award from $2,000 to $5,000.
