Purpose: The Diana Venable Scholarship was established in 2008 to honor the memory of Diana Venable, a Rotarian who had a passion for children. In particular, Diana would find a worthy high school student who didn’t have the money to go to college and she would find a way to make it happen. Carrying on her work, the purpose of the Diana Venable Scholarship Fund is to enable low-income students who have a record of superior academic achievement and personal growth, along with leadership potential for both professional careers and civic contributions, to attend college.
Current Goals: The Diana Venable Scholarship Fund serves 6-10 students simultaneously.
Activities/responsibilities: Our club designed this scholarship and only our members mentor these students. It is solely funded through the generosity of members of Club 33. Interview and selection process begins in April.
Why join: To make a life-changing difference in a young person’s life.
