Emily Turner receives scholarship from Democratic Club

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Democratic Club awarded high school senior Emily Turner with an enlarged version of a check for $500 to use toward her college degree in journalism. Chris Assad, club publicity and scholarship chairperson, introduced Emily at the meeting on June 3. Thirty-five members and guests were there for the occasion.

Although there were 17 qualified applicants for the scholarship, Emily was the perfect recipient with her A+ average and nearly one-thousand hours of volunteer services to the Women’s Resource Center, New Haven Home for Boys, Stand up for Kids, Angel Shop, Casa De Amparo and Special Olympics to name a few. She has also received awards from the National Charity League.

In her essay she said “Each time I volunteer, I fall more in love with the act of helping others. My goal is to make this world a better place.”
