Two Carmichaels Area School District graduates are the recipients of recent scholarships.
Jacob Hair and Stephen Zacoi were each awarded a $5,000 scholarship from the Paul and Dolores Jazwa Lavins Scholarship Fund. Each year, the fund awards two $5,000 scholarships, renewable each year for four years, to two deserving Carmichaels seniors. This is the 20th year this scholarship has been given at Carmichaels.
Hair was also the recipient of the Michael E. Holupka, Jr. and Kathleen Marinoff Gift Fund, which awards a $1,000 scholarship each year for no longer than five years to a deserving Carmichaels senior. This fund has been an active part of Carmichaels’ graduation for the past 21 years.

Zacoi is the son of John and Katherine Zacoi of Crucible. He plans to attend Pennsylvania State University and major in Computer Information Sciences and Technologies.
The criteria for both scholarship selections include: need, grades, co-curricular participation, contributions to the school and a positive attitude toward the need for a college education.
