Altrusa International of Washington Court House awarded its second of two $500 scholarships to Washington Senior High School graduate Cammi Borden at its Aug. 4 business meeting.

It has been a tradition since 1995 for Altrusa of Washington Court House to award scholarships each year to two graduating female students of Fayette County’s public schools.

Cammi has a strong music background. She participated in all musicals at both the middle and high school levels, often in one of the major supporting roles. Cammi was a member of the Washington Middle School Choir all three years and a Washington band member for seven years where she participated in jazz, pep, concert, symphonic, honor, and marching bands. She played trombone and represented the school district at solo and ensemble competitions.

Cammi was a four-year member of Hi-Y and served as Hi-Y president her senior year. She also served on the Board of United Way during her senior year. As an underclassman, Cammi participated in student government and the art club.

Cammi, who is the daughter of Cameron and Teresa Borden and the granddaughter of Terry and Brenda Morris, plans to attend Wright State University in the fall where she will major in pre-med. She plans to be a neurologist.

Altrusans raise funds for scholarships through projects such as the upcoming sixth-annual Loving Spoonsful tasting luncheon, scheduled for Oct. 8 at the Commission on Aging. Each year’s event grows resulting in additional resources being contributed to our local community organizations and projects.

Altrusa is an international non-profit organization that strives to make our local communities better through leadership, partnership and service. Altrusa of Washington Court House has been serving Fayette County for 41 years.
