Jackson Hole Rotary Lunch Club honors students

The Jackson Hole Rotary Lunch Club honored this year’s senior scholarship recipients during their meeting earlier this week. Forty-two students representing every school throughout Teton County were awarded scholarships totaling $203,500. Mike Blazek, Rick Palmer and Rotary awarded a scholarship honoring late Rotary Treasurer Lee Burbank.

The two-year Lee Burbank Scholarship, honoring the late Rotary Treasurer, was presented for vocational education. Amy Ringholz, who has supported an art scholarship through Rotary over the years, was on hand to award this year’s winner. Lynn Friess, representing both herself and the late Foster Friess, provided each student with $1,000 totaling $42,000 to be spent on “pizza and ice cream” to nurture and grow new friendships in college or trade school.

This gift is a legacy tradition of the Friess Family. The Jackson Hole Rotary’s Lunch Club Foundation and the Fund for Public Education awarded $8,000 in grants to local Teton County School District #1 teacher, including Rachel Spellman, Cate Finlay, Brook Yeomans, Hillie Elwood, Anne Sudmeier, Kathryn Steele, Sarah Faris, Miranda Mosis, Daniel Abraham, Jessica Davidson Lynch, Buffy Allen, Kate Kool, David Wells, Alivia Bingham, Theresa Lundquist and Christina Montiel.
