Sauk Valley Community College student Katelyn Sedig of Morrison was recently awarded the Morrison Rotary Club Scholarship for 2009-10. This $500 award was distributed through the Sauk Foundation.
Sedig, a speech pathology major, plans to graduate from Sauk with an Associate in Applied Science in 2011, then major in speech pathology at a four-year institution. She would like to pursue a career as a school speech therapist.
A 2009 graduate of Morrison Community High School, Katelyn is the daughter of Charles Sedig of Sterling and Susan Sedig of Morrison.
The Morrison Rotary Club selects recipients for this distinguished scholarship to help students pursue their educational goals and is one of 80 private donors that provide scholarships to deserving Sauk students.
