Award History
Since 2005 The Kiwanis Club of Standish has continued to make changes to our scholarship
program. Private schools were added in 2007 and in 2008 anyone residing in our area became eligible. We
went from four to six scholarships. Guy Wescott was a lifetime member of the Kiwanis Club of Standish.
Wescott left an endowment to the club for use as scholarships. Since then, the Kiwanis Club of Standish
has divided the award into various scholarships. These awards honor Guy Wescott, Russell Jenkins,
Rutledge Morton and Wesley Dolloff, all deceased club members who made great contributions to our
community. Dan Weston was a Kiwanis member for a short time, but he was devoted to his family and
Kiwanis. In 2011 we changed name of Bonny Eagle Community Service to honor Walter Hill who passed
away to recognize his long service to the club and communities.
