American Association of University Women academic award
The Hastings branch of the American Association of University Women, AAUW, awards an academic scholarship to a high-ranking female high school student every year. The scholarship's objective is to give recognition and assistance to a student who has defined high aspirations of accomplishments in the field of her choice and who has participated in a wide range of extracurricular and volunteer activities during her time as a high school student.
Bailey Fluegel received the 2018 AAUW scholarship. She will attend Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., majoring in mathematics. Revenue for the annual AAUW Hastings High School scholarship is provided from earnings secured from an annual garage and bake sale. This year's fundraising event will be held 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15, at River of Life Church, 800 Vermillion St, Hastings.
