The scholarships were presented for exceptionally high performance in grades nine to 12. Jackie Lollis, scholarship chairperson for Chapter LQ, presented the scholarships to Peterson.

The International STAR Scholarship for $2,500 and the Chapter LQ Scholarship for $500 has a primary focus on providing educational opportunities for female students to attend post-secondary educational institutions in the United States or Canada. The scholarships, awarded by Philanthropic Educational Organizations (P.E.O.), recognize excellence in leadership, extracurricular activities, community service, academics and potential for success.

Peterson is only the second student from Sedalia to receive the international scholarship since Chapter LQ became involved in 2009.
