Students presented Ullyot scholarships The University of South Dakota College of Arts and Sciences recently presented the Dr. Glenn E. and Barbara R. Ullyot Scholarship for 2001-2002.
Jessica Hausken and Marlena Miller of Vermillion, each have been awarded the Ullyot Scholarship in the amount of $800.
The couple established the awards in 1993 with the intention the scholarships be given, but not limited, to students who graduated from Clark High School in Clark, and who plan to major in any of the natural sciences, with chemistry majors receiving the highest priority.
After graduating from Clark High School, Ullyot attended The University of South Dakota in 1927. He spent the next two years at the university, where Professor William Purdee introduced him to organic chemistry.
Ullyot went on to receive his bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota and his doctorate from the University of Illinois. It was from his experiences at USD that he hopes future students can pursue their dreams.
