    MUSCATINE, Iowa – Over $900,000 in scholarships have been awarded to Columbus Community, Louisa-Muscatine, Muscatine, Wapello, and Wilton High Schools’ graduates and Muscatine Community College students this year.

    The Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine, and their affiliate the Community Foundation of Louisa County, awarded over half a million dollars in scholarships. Muscatine Community College Foundation and Muscatine Community School District also awarded additional scholarships in partnership with the Community Foundation.

    “We are so thankful for the generosity of donors who make these scholarship awards possible,” said Lynsey Krusie, Program Manager. “Graduating seniors benefit greatly from the support of the community to lessen the financial burden of postsecondary education.”

    Supporters such as Bob and JoAnn Jensen present their scholarship awards to recipients each year. “Our family-owned business, Temp Associates & RJK, Inc., has been in business for 35 years and this is an opportunity for our family to give back to Muscatine area communities,” said Bob and JoAnn.

    The Temp Associates and RJK, Inc. Scholarship awards are presented to graduating seniors from three area high schools, including awards to four graduates of Muscatine High School, one graduate of Louisa-Muscatine, and one award to a Wilton graduate. These scholarships are $4,000 each year, and are renewable for an additional three years, for a total value of $16,000. Recipients, or a family member, have all worked for Temp Associates.

    “I am extremely grateful to have the absolute honor of receiving this very generous scholarship from Temp Associates and RJK, Inc.,” said Isabelle Rodriguez. “It means a lot to my family and me, and I am excited to continue my academic success at Scott Community College with the help of this scholarship.”
