Kiwanis Pancake Day, a Marion Tradition, returns March 12!

A Marion Tradition is back this year! The Marion Noon Kiwanis Pancake Day will be held Saturday, March 12, 2022, 7am to 2pm at Tri-Rivers Career Center. The event, along with offering all the pancakes you can eat along with sausage, juice, milk and coffee, also showcases local talent throughout the day. “It is definitely a gathering of friends and family,” said Gareth Higgins, club president. “The community has missed this gathering. We are thankful we can hold it this year to raise funds for area children’s groups and youth scholarships.

When it comes to serving up a scrumptious breakfast, nothing seems to top our fascination with the pancake, said Higgins. “And if you’re familiar with the Marion Noon Kiwanis Annual Pancake Day, chances are you’ve had your share of pancakes—one of our organizations’ key ingredients for a successful fundraiser.”

Most importantly, the proceeds from the event benefit children through groups and activities such as: Marion Tall Grass Trail, Marion Palace Theatre, Explore-It-Torium Children’s Museum, Marion Public Library, Marion Goodwill Industries, Junior Service Guild Clearinghouse, the Dog Park, the Pep Club, Altrusa-RX Marion, and numerous other groups. Plus, the Kiwanis Foundation provides scholarships.

ApplicationsThe application process is similar to previous years. One application makes students/graduates eligible for all scholarships for which they qualify. Only online applications will be accepted. The application does not have to be completed all at once. Students can save and return to answer more questions or correct information previously entered. The application does require recommendations, essays, financial information, and more. Submitting FAFSA information is optional but highly encouraged.

Guidance Counselor RecommendationsThe application for high school students does require Guidance Counselors to provide the student’s GPA (based on 4.0 scale), class rank, ACT and/or SAT scores, and a HS transcript. This recommendation will be an electronic email request from Smarter Select. Students’ applications will not move to the SUBMITTED Status until this information is received. Please be timely with these so students can submit their application.

Applications also require the students to receive two recommendations (teacher and community member). If you can let teachers know of the importance and need for timeliness, we would appreciate it.

It is the student’s responsibility to make sure the recommendations are completed in their application. Students should contact, call, or text their recommenders to make them aware that an email was sent to them to fill out a recommendation on their behalf.
