The Kiwanis Club of Alameda recently announced that it has awarded $35,000 in scholarships to five high school students in Alameda. Kiwanis awarded the scholarships based on the students’ submitted applications, their community involvement, educational factors and financial need. Parents and teachers attended a luncheon held at the Elks Club to honor the recipients.
