The Rotary Club of Pattaya awarded nearly 130,000 baht in scholarships to smart, but underprivileged students at 11 Pattaya schools and the Redemptorist Vocational School.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome joined Rotary District 3340 Gov. Jin Srikasin, Pattaya club President Jamlong Phassa, and former District Gov. Pratheep Malhotra for the June 19 presentation at Pattaya School No. 7.

“The student scholarship ceremony is another project for the benefit of the society and to promote education for children and youths,” Jamlong said. “The scholarships were awarded to outstanding students with weak financial strength in Chonburi Education Office Region 3, which includes all 11 Pattaya public schools.”
In all, 1,500-baht scholarships were given to 66 students in Pattaya’s 11 public schools, six from each institution. In addition, scholarships were awarded to 20 students at the Redemptorist Vocational School.
Itthiphol thanked the Rotary leaders for the stipends, noting the scholarships were just one of many ways club members aid society.
Following the ceremony, the Rotary Club provided lunch and dessert for the students and guests assembled.
