Brittany Walsh recently attended and spoke at the Scottsburg Kiwanis weekly dinner/meeting at The Kitchen on The Square in Scottsburg. Pictured with Brittany is Millie Cooper. Millie is a former Kiwanianne. The Kiwaniannes were a women’s auxiliary of the Kiwanis for years until the 1980’s when women could join the Kiwanis. At that time the Kiwaniannes were disbanded. However, the Scottsburg Kiwaniannes were such an active, involved group serving the kids in Scott County that they continued to meet till just a few years ago. The Kiwaniannes used to give out scholarships to students each year. The last scholarship recipient of a Kiwanianne’s scholarship was Brittany Walsh. Brittany attended Ball State University and received a Kiwanianne scholarship in 2013. She graduated this spring and has earned a teaching certificate. Brittany will begin teaching sixth grade near Muncie, IN this fall. She felt so strongly about the support she received from the Kiwaniannes that she wanted to come back and personally thank them for the scholarship and bring them up to date on her studies and achievements since receiving the scholarship. The members of the club were touched by Brittany’s presentation and shared in her pride in her accomplishments. The Kiwanis wished her the best as she begins her teaching career. Brittany’s sister, Abby, now attends Ball State University. Abby was a four year member of the SHS Key Club where she served as its president and served at the Indiana District level as the Bulletin Editor where she earned special Governors recognition. Abby is now a member of the Circle K Club at Ball State University. Her youngest sister, Lily, is a member of the SMS Builders Club and will be the Vice President this year.
