In July, the Beta Alpha Pi chapter of Beta Pi Sorority, a local nonacademic 501(c)(3) charitable organization, presented Dr. Alvaro Montiero of the Moffitt Cancer Center Research Institute with a grant check in the amount of $54,255 to be used for cancer research.
Money raised from all chapters totaled $325,530, which was distributed to Montiero and five other doctors working in the field of cancer research.
Beta Alpha Pi is planning an October golf tournament at East Lake Woodlands Country Club. All proceeds will be donated toward cancer research.

The requirements include the completion of the BSA American Heritage, Genealogy and Law merit badges. These merit badges are given special consideration by the SAR when Scouts subsequently attain the rank of Eagle and qualify to apply for the SAR Eagle Scout Scholarship.

Case was last year's winner of the SAR Eagle Scout Scholarship for the Clearwater Chapter and went on to win third place at the SAR Eagle Scout Scholarship Florida Society level.
Case, 17, attends Palm Harbor University High. He is the son of Richard and Pamela Case.
