Kiwanis awards scholarships

More than 30 years ago, founding member of the Ennis Kiwanis Club Wesley Knize began a scholarship program that is still giving back to students today.
Knize, who is the father of 40th Judicial District Judge Gene Knize, helped found the club in the 1940s. He was an integral part of the club and the community until his death.
“He attended faithfully for over 50 years, and the Knize Scholarship is his legacy,” said Ennis Kiwanis Club President Tommy Copeland.
Every year, the Ennis Kiwanis Club picks two graduating seniors to receive the $1,000 scholarships.
The students must be members of the Ennis High School Key Club. In their application for the scholarship, the students had to prove themselves both in academics and extracurricular activities.
The students were also instructed to write an essay. This year’s theme was “Knowledge: Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough.”
This year, seniors Briana Treadaway and Eric Hill were selected.
Both students, along with their respective family members, were present at Thursday’s Kiwanis Club meeting. Both Treadaway and Hill read their essays to the Kiwanis Club members.
