The annual Plano West Rotary Club is back just in time for the holiday baking season. For 36 years, the organization has sold 14-ounce bags of Texas-grown, shelled pecans to help fund scholarships for individuals pursuing higher education.

The club has been funding student scholarships for more than 30 years. It helps high school seniors, single parents, college students and trade school students continue their education by awarding six scholarships of $1,000 each. The criteria for an individual to be considered for a scholarship include participation in leadership roles, a commitment to serving their community and a proven need for financial support.

“Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders, and the pecan sale is a great way for the entire community to get involved with doing that,” club president Joy Hinkelman says. “By offering scholarships, Plano West Rotary is not only assisting individuals in their pursuit of higher education, but also educating them about the world of Rotary. A larger pool of service-minded adults makes the accomplishment of Rotary’s mission an easier target.”
