The Kiwanis Club of Swoyersville presented scholarships to students of the area at a recent meeting. The Kiwanis presents two awards each year and this year there was an additional scholarship given, in the name of Eugene and Eleanor Breznay, parents of a Kiwanis member. The recipients were determined by their grades, community service, and school activities. The students and their parents were treated to dinner and the speaker for the evening was a representative of Wilkes University. Tom Thomas is an instructor and advisor who works with student support programs at Wilkes.
