The Rotary Club of Marfa is pleased to announce that, with the approval of a grant from Rotary District 5520, the club will be awarding one $3,000 student scholarship this year in addition to scholarships funded by the Marfa club’s own fundraising efforts.

The club is awarding four additional $2,000 scholarships. The club selected Marfa High School student Henry Catching Marginot as the recipient of the $3,000 award. The $2,000 scholarships have been awarded to Marfa High School students John Aguero, Bryanna Bentley and Zach Gomez. The C. K.

The club supports the youth of Marfa as one of our most important community projects. “We would like to thank all the citizens and businesses in Marfa who have purchased raffle tickets, participated in our golf tournament and have supported the Rotary Club in this community for almost 100 years,” said a spokesperson for the rotary club.
