The Zonta Club of Elizabethtown offers an Amelia Earhart Scholarship to senior girls at high schools in Hardin County. Amelia Earhart was an important member of Zonta International. There were 18 entries submitted from three schools this year and Rachel Witten from Central Hardin High School was the winner. She plans to attend Western Kentucky University majoring in English and language arts.

The Zonta Club of Elizabethtown also is offering a second scholarship, the Young Women in Public Affairs scholarship. The information recently was sent to all high schools. Forms are due to counselors’ offices no later than March 19.

Zontians work together to advance the status of women locally, nationally and worldwide. Meetings are held locally on the fourth Thursday of each month.
