The Kent Lions Club awarded two $500 scholarships in memory of John Ferlito, who was a longtime member of the Kent Lions Club and died in March.
Ferlito was the sight and hearing chairman for more than 20 years and encouraged Kent Lions to assist with eye screening students in the Kent Schools, which has continued for more than 20 years.
Anne Martin and Eli McCarty, seniors at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent, were chosen to receive the scholarships based on their dedication to community service and their academic achievements, as well as participation in extracurricular activities.
Anne Martin will attend Virginia Polytechnic Institute and Eli McCarty will be attending the University of Cincinnati.
