The Maspeth Kiwanis Club held their 2009 Scholarship Awards Luncheon on Thursday, June 25, where twelve 2009 high school graduates were chosen to receive awards amounting to $1,500 each.

The criteria for selecting the winners included a high grade point average and living in the Maspeth Kiwanis District. The students all achieved around a 94 average during high school.

"Our Kiwanis Club has given scholarships amounting to almost a half-million dollars since 1954," said Kiwanian Ken Rudzewick. The total amount of scholarship awards given for the 2009 graduates was $18,000, which will aide them in their educational goals.

John Guinta from Middle Village was one of the winners. He went to Martin Luther High School and plans to attend Queens College. Jaime Perez is from Flushing. She attended Marin Luther as well, and plans to attend Marymount Manhattan.

Brendan Smyth is now a Regis High School grad. He's going the University of Maryland. Dorota Sawicki lives in Maspeth. She's a Molloy graduate going across the country to UCLA. Michelle Eichorst lives in Middle Village. She went to Molloy and will be attending Villanova University in September.

Peter Plaza, also a Middle Village resident who went to Molloy, will be commuting to St. John's in September. Matthew Krukowski graduated from Stuyvesant High School and plans to attend Brown this Fall. Nicole Pavia was a Stuyvesant High School student as well, and she is going to Duke University in September.

Kristin Sapienza lives in Maspeth. She attended Christ the King and will be attending Adelphi in the fall. Natalie Alberman lives in Forest Hills. She graduated from Forest Hills High School and will be dorming at Duke. Eric Yanezi, a Grover Cleveland graduate, will be attending the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College this fall semester. Colleen Fasone also attended Grover Cleveland, and was another winner of the scholarship award.

The Kiwanis Club also acknowledged Maspeth native and Kiwanis member Lou Bekios at their weekly meeting last Thursday. He provided the flower arrangements - donated by Grand Florist - for the Memorial Day Parade that took place this year on Grand Avenue.
