Bob Miano of Hannibal was the lucky winner of the Hannibal Dollars for Scholars $100 gas card raffle. Mr. Miano commutes from Hannibal to Syracuse every day 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 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 2010, in addition to the Duck Derby and Gas Card Raffle fund raisers, large donations from the Hannibal Village Market’s golf tournament, the Hannibal Country Cruizers and the 2009 Duck Derby winner made it possible for thirteen students to receive scholarships. Scholarships for 2011 will be awarded in June. Anyone interested in working with the chapter can contact Louis Gilbert, Chapter President at 564-5679.
