The Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce has awarded a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior in both the Solanco and Lampeter-Strasburg school districts. The Solanco scholarship recipient is Henry Woy, while Jacob Visniski was chosen to receive the Lampeter-Strasburg scholarship.

The scholarships are awarded annually to one student in each district who will pursue a career in business through post-secondary education, or by starting their own business. Henry Woy is attending Susquehanna University, Selinsgrove, PA, majoring in Luxury Brand Marketing while Jacob Visniski is attending Purdue University and majoring in Information Technology.

The Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce obtains funding for the scholarships through its annual Shredding Event. This year’s community Shredding Event was held in June at G.R. Mitchell Inc., on Beaver Valley Pike in Willow Street. At the Shredding Event each year, local businesses, organizations and residents are invited to bring their sensitive and confidential paper-based materials for shredding. All shredded material is recycled. Donations are encouraged and are used by the chamber of commerce to fund the annual college scholarships.
