The Estero Council of Community Leaders (ECCL), Estero Historical Society and Estero Chamber of Commerce presented scholarships totaling $3,000 to students Brian Robinson and
Mary Sue Burun on May 4, 2021, at the Estero High School Awards Ceremony.
This was the first year for the Estero Community Scholarship awards, but the three Estero area organizations plan to make this an annual event for graduating seniors. A scholarship of $1,000 each was available from each organization. Students submitted essays on “Governance,” “Estero History,” or “Estero Business” for blind judging by 10 representatives from the three organizations.
Mary Sue Burun won the scholarship from the Estero Historical Society. Brian Robinson won scholarships from the ECCL for his essay on “governance” and from the Estero Chamber of Commerce for a separate essay on “Estero Business.”
