Scholarship Information

Each scholarship recipient receives $1,200.00. The students were selected through the application they submitted and personal interviews with the scholarship committee headed by Russ McBride. The students shared some of their career goals at the May 5th Spring Meeting held in the Guthery Room. James "Scoonie" Penn was the speaker at that meeting and he was impressed with the quality of students that were chosen.
