Bowling for Scholars Recap

Tropicana Lanes was the site for a world record attempt, some serious fundraising and some not-so-serious bowling at the 11th annual Bowling for Scholars event, sponsored by St. Louis Community College's Auxiliary Services department.

Bowling for Scholars participants set a world record for the most people in one place who sported a Superman hair curl.
