Once again the Dunwoody Woman’s Club is pleased to announce that this year we awarded three $2000 Student Achievement Scholarships to outstanding college bound high school seniors. The scholarship recipients are Caitlin Dodson (Dunwoody High School), Grace Leigh Keller (Mount Vernon School) and Annabel Santoli (Mount Vernon School). Students applying must live or attend school in zip codes of 30328, 30338, 30346, 30350 or 30360.

This award is presented to students who, in the opinion of the awards committee, demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, school and community involvement, and an exceptional desire for higher education.  One commonality in all the recipients is a sincere desire to make the world a better place.    It is an honor and a pleasure for the Dunwoody Woman’s Club to have a role in helping make such outstanding student dreams a reality.

Caitlin Dodson not only is in the top 7% of her class while completing 12 AP classes to date, she is active in her community with her participation in Youth City Council member , Girl Scouts of America and tutoring for underprivileged children.

Grace Leigh Keller was accepted into the University of Georgia Honors Program where she is pursuing a program that will allow her to obtain an undergraduate degree and graduate degree in five years or less. She is a volunteer at Nicholas House where she works with children. Her goal is to one day be a financial analyst on the news.

Annabel Santoli has been involved with many different service projects and extracurricular activities such as her work at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. A member of the Beta Club and National Honor Society, Annabel wishes to pursue Nursing at the University of Georgia where she is pursuing a Bachelors of Science degree.
