Six scholarships, with a combined total of $25,000, were presented by the Mooresville Rescue Squad Foundation to local high school graduates.
The one-year scholarships were awarded to students who desire to serve others and who choose a career in public service. Following the application process, the students had a face-to-face interview with MRSF board members. Other selection criteria were based upon the students’ grade point averages and financial need.
