The Mesquite Rotary Club has awarded scholarships of $1,500 each to students from each of the Mesquite and Sunnyvale area high schools, and to students from the Mesquite Academy and Dallas Christian School. This investment by the club in the future of these deserving area scholars totaled $12,000. 
Those receiving the $1,500 Rotary scholarships this year included Talia Matamoros of Mesquite High School, Liliana Rojas of North Mesquite High School, Aubrey Jones of West Mesquite High School, Kennedy Hartman of Dr. Ralph H. Poteet High School, Gillian McKenzie of Dr. John D. Horn High School, Kyra Hogan of the Mesquite Academy, Jeweliet Coffee of Dallas Christian School, and Sam Habashy of Sunnyvale High School.
The Mesquite Rotary Club scholarship committee for 2022 was chaired by Todd Price, and also included Mark Kerby, Conner Dyer, Stephen Biggs, and Yolanda Shepard. In making the award decisions, the committee considered the students’ academic records, their involvement in school activities, their community service activities, and financial need.
