Peg Borchers of Sterling was the lucky winner of the Hannibal Dollars for Scholars New Years’s Day $100 gas card raffle. Ms. Borchers drives to varous sites around several counties as part of her job, so the gas card is especially appreciated with the rising cost of a gallon of gas. Hannibal Dollars for Scholars provides scholarships to graduates of Hannibal High School each year. The New Year’s gas card raffle will netted enough profit to provide a scholarship and a half. The number of scholarships awarded varies due to the amount of funds raised through events and donations during the previous year. The Duck Derby is the largest fund raiser, providing four scholarships each year. In 2011, in addition to the Duck Derby and Gas Card Raffle fund raisers, donations from the the Hannibal Country Cruizers and several community members made it possible for thirteen students to receive scholarships. Scholarships for 2012 will be awarded in June. Donations and assistance with fund raising efforts are needed, as the number of students in need is rising, while funds have been depleted.
