The Lake Travis Rotary Club awarded nine Lake Travis High School graduating seniors with a total of $20,000 in scholarships July 24 to be used for their higher-education expenses, said Laura Mitchell, president of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce.

Additionally, the LTRC continued two scholarships that were already granted to college students as well as a scholarship to a graduate student to help defray program costs in a Brighton, England, program, said Jeff Lamb, LTRC Scholarship Committee.

The high school scholarships are based on financial need, community service and extracurricular activities, he said.
