Mayor Carlo DeMaria attended the Annual Everett Kiwanis Scholarship Awards Luncheon at the Crimson Café at Everett High School on Tuesday. The event was held to award graduating Everett High School seniors Kiwanis Club scholarships for their postsecondary education.
Lunch was prepared and served by the students who are part of the high school’s Culinary Arts program. Items on the menu included chicken piccata and baked haddock served with rice and sauteed broccoli and julienne red and yellow peppers. For dessert, the items offered were peach cobbler, chocolate molten cake and carrot cake.
Following the lunch, Mayor DeMaria and State Representative Joe McGonagle awarded citations to students to honor their scholarship awards. Not every student who was awarded a scholarship was present at the luncheon. School Supt. Priya Tahiliani was a special guest, and the event was led by Kiwanis Club President KathyAnn Dottin.
