The Clay-Union Foundation will offer a $500 community service scholarship to students who will graduate in 2014, and plan to attend a four-year accredited university. The application will go online in December, and guidance offices will be notified when it is available to students.
Elly Miiller was this year’s recipient and will receive her funds in January 2014.
Elk Point-Jefferson and Vermillion high school seniors will be eligible to apply this year, and local support is needed to keep the scholarship funded.
Those wishing to help support the scholarship or program have several options: Donations of grain in any amount will be accepted at Ag Opportunities, all Southeast Farmers elevators, and Farmers Coop in Akron, IA, or go to http://www.clay-unionfoundation.org/ and click on the donation button for several ways to support mentoring and scholarships.
For more information on being involved in the foundation as a mentor, youth or sponsor, contact John Gille at email@example.com or call (605) 421-5050.
