C-U Kiwanis Club recognizes local high school seniors
The Champaign-Urbana noon Kiwanis Club presented its 2021 Vic Shaul Scholarships to five local high school graduating seniors: Niki Bargi Rangin of Centennial; Kyeah Isaiah Rogers of Champaign Central; Phillip T. Durst of Judah Christian; Laureen Paige Brown of St. Thomas More High School and Joanna Yoo of Urbana University High. Urbana High did not submit a candidate.
The $500 scholarships are awarded in memory of Verrollton C. Shaul, a long-time Kiwanis Club leader and director of music education in Unit 4 schools.
Scholarships totaling more than $80,000 have been awarded since 1989 to honor Shaul, who was music director for Champaign schools for 31 years until he retired in 1976. He served in various Kiwanis leadership positions at local, regional and international levels, including as leader and arranger of music at the annual Kiwanis International conventions for 25 years through 1991. He died in 1993.
The club’s annual Central Leadership Awards went to seniors Judson Wagner and Elizabeth Asmussen, who were chosen by the high school’s administrators and counselors.
