Carl Hackman, president of the Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce, recently awarded a $500 scholarship to two local students attending The Janus School, 205 Lefever Road, Mount Joy.
The two Mount Joy students were 11th grader Mark Laube and 2nd grader Jadon Matias. The $500 scholarships presented on Sept. 25 will be put towards their education at The Janus School. Both of the boys had their families present as they received their scholarships.
