Rosenwald Descendants awarded scholarships

The Rosenwald School Reunion Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded seven $500 scholarships to college-bound descendants of former Rosenwald students. The generous donations of alumni and friends made it possible to continue a 16-year tradition since the fund was established in the year 2000.
