JOHNSTOWN — Northern Cambria County Rotary Club has awarded five $1,000 scholarships to area graduating seniors.

For the 20 years of its existence, the club has awarded the scholarships annually to graduating seniors for postsecondary education.

Those vying for the scholarships had to answer a two-part essay question: In your view, what are the underlying causes of school violence? What would you do for short-term corrections and long-term solutions?

The winners also must agree to work at the Rotary golf outing on June 7 and attend three Rotary meetings.

The awards were presented to:

• Jeff Hogan, a 2013 graduate of Northern Cambria High School and the son of Mike Hogan.

He plans to attend St. Francis University, Loretto, and major in secondary math education.

• Angela Bobak, a 2013 graduate of Cambria Heights High School and the daughter of Ken and Karen Bobak.

She plans to attend Seton Hill University, Greensburg, and major in biology/pre-osteopathic medicine with the goal of becoming a pediatrician.

• Haley Delosh, a 2013 graduate of Cambria Heights High School and the daughter of Pat and Jen Flora.

She plans to attend Pitt-Johnstown and major in pre-law.

• Heidi Krantz, a 2013 graduate of Cambria Heights High School and the daughter of Kim and Scott Krantz.

She plans to attend Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Athens, Ohio, and major in broadcast journalism.
