In the MVS contest, Kentucky had one national finalist who made the top 20 nationwide, Ashley Adams, who attended the Elks Scholar Leadership Weekend in Chicago and will receive a $20,000 scholarship. Ashley is the sixth Kentucky student in the last six years to be a national
finalist. Kentucky also has three other national semi-finalists, who each received a $4,000 award.
The State Association generously allotted $20,000 to provide state association scholarships for eight boys and eight girls in the class of 2023 Kentucky students won 7 Legacy Award Winners (Children and Grandchildren of Elks).
A list of MVS, State Scholarship, and Legacy winners for 2023 is attached.
Again, I would once again encourage your lodges to send representatives to the Senior nights for our MVS, State, and Legacy winners. Let your communities know how proud we are as Elks to help the kids.
