SIDNEY — The Sidney Kiwanis Club presented $1,500 scholarships to two area teens recently who were named Co-teens of the Year by the club.
Sarah-Renee White and Jacob Pleiman share the honor.
This is a first for the Kiwanis Club Teen Program, and Kiwanis Club President John Coffield said the club never considered a tie-breaker.

Her other notable school achievements include honor roll; Honda Math Medal; John Phillip Sousa Band Award; Kiwanis Teen of the Month; Crimes Busters Third Place Medalist; Disease Detectives Second Place Medalist; and Top of the Class Awards.
