The St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce awarded $1,000 scholarships to four St. Tammany high school seniors: Corinne Bosch from Mandeville High School, Zeta McCaskill from Slidell High School, Brandon Kaske from Pearl River High School, and Lilith Lodge from Pearl River High School. The scholarships were funded with proceeds from the Chamber’s 2022 Swinging for Scholarships Golf Tournament.

“The Chamber is committed to the growth of business and keeping local talent in our community,” said St. Tammany Chamber CEO Lacey Osborne. “We are thankful to everyone who participated in the golf tournament and made these scholarships possible. We hope our annual golf tournament will enable us to continue to award scholarships.”

Applications were open to St. Tammany residents with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and planning to attend a Louisiana college or university. Applicants also submitted a 250-word essay on what influenced the decision to pursue a college degree and two letters of recommendation from a non-family member.

This fall, Brandon Kaske is attending Louisiana Tech in Ruston; Zeta McCaskill is attending ULL in Lafayette; and Corinne Bosch and Lilith Lodge are attending LSU in Baton Rouge.

“The Selection Committee was very impressed with the accomplishments of Corinne, Zeta, Brandon and Lilith,” said Chamber Board Chairman David Boudreaux with Hancock Whitney Bank. “We commend them for their academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, and determination. I would also like to thank our Chamber member volunteers and sponsors for helping make our golf tournament exceed our expectations.”
