WARREN - For the past 39 years, the Warren Kiwanis Club has presented scholarships to local students from Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy and Lordstown high schools.
The event is held each May in memory of Erwin Klein, who served as club president and secretary during his 27 years with the club.
Kiwanis president Jan Vaughn said Kiwanis was a large part of Klein's life because of its main focus on helping young people.
The club has honored more than 1,000 students throughout the years. Each student received a $250 scholarship.
