All graduating high school seniors living in the Lewiston-Porter School District, including parochial and home-schooled seniors, are invited to apply for the Neil Riordan Memorial Scholarships sponsored annually by the Youngstown Lions Club in memory of former Youngstown Mayor Neil Riordan. Up to three recipients will be chosen this year to receive awards of $1,500 each.
Applicants for these scholarships must be enrolled full-time in a college, university or trade school, with a start date of September of the scholarship year, i.e., fall of 2023. In alignment with the “We Serve” mission of the Youngstown Lions Club, students who are pursuing careers that will provide service to their community such as nursing, education or the skilled trades are encouraged to apply.
Requirements include the completed paper application form obtained from the Lewiston-Porter High School Counseling Center; or download the application from the Lewiston-Porter website, www.lew-port.com, and navigate to the high school counseling center office site. All completed applications are due to the Lewiston-Porter High School Counseling Center, either as paper copy or as attachment in an email, no later than Friday, April 21.
