The Coastal Georgetown Branch of the American Association of University Women will recognize its scholarship recipients during a luncheon ceremony at 11 a.m., Thursday, June 8, at Shrimpy’s Bar & Grill, Rehoboth Beach.

This year, CG-AAUW offered three $2,500 scholarships and one additional workforce development scholarship to female seniors from among Cape Henlopen, Indian River, Sussex Academy, Sussex Tech and Sussex Central high school applicants. In addition to a solid academic record, they had to demonstrate leadership with a strong resumé of community service. Members and guests will hear about the students’ academic, volunteer and service successes, along with their future college goals.

The 2023 winners are Lily Manlove from Sussex Academy, Kaitlyn Johnson and Vicky Chan from Indian River High School, and Mikayla Kall from Cape Henlopen High School.

The current Indian River High School Business Professionals of America chapter president, Chan is also vice president of her school's Leo Club volunteer group. She earned the AP Scholar, Secretary of Education Scholar, National Rural and Small Town Recognition and NMSQT Commended Scholar awards. She plans to attend the University of Delaware.

Johnson participated in numerous organizations, including Tri-M Musical Honor Society, National Honor Society, Leo Club, VEX Robotics, concert band and 4-H. She plans to attend the University of Delaware honors program, majoring in mechanical engineering with aspirations of achieving bachelor's and master's degrees. She intends to join the university level of VEX Robotics, called VEX U, to enhance her passion for robotics and mechanical engineering.

An honor roll senior from Cape Henlopen High School, Kall was awarded the Jeffery Borrin Memorial Scholarship from CG-AAUW. She enjoys building things with her hands, as well as engineering and science. She is continuing her education at Sussex Tech Adult Education in the field of carpentry at night while finishing her senior year of high school, maintaining high grades. She plans to run her own company one day.

Manlove receives the Virginia Rust Scholarship, named after the founder of the Coastal Georgetown Branch of AAUW. She plans to attend Clemson University and study business. At Sussex Academy, Manlove was a year-round athlete on the field hockey, indoor track and lacrosse teams. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering at Sussex Academy elementary school, going to the beach, and spending time with her family and friends.

CG-AAUW members expect great things from all four of these young women.
