Rebecca Benvie received the Youth Optimist Scholarship and Service Award for the 2017-18 school year.

Benvie is a senior at Superior High School, and upon graduation, plans to major in pre-med at college. As the award winner, she will receive a $250 scholarship to the college of her choice.

In addition, she had the opportunity to select a recipient of $750 for a service award. She chose Harbor House Crisis Shelters in Superior. She has a special place in her heart for families in need, and presented the award to the Rev. Barb Certa-Werner.

Two students each month from October through May are chosen to be Youth Optimists. They all have the chance to win the scholarship and service award presented between their junior and senior years.
