The Christian County Agriculture and Mechanical Society proudly awarded its second annual scholarships to two Ozark High School graduates.
The recipients are Rylee Smith, daughter of Dr. Rick and Beth Smith of Ozark, a sophomore currently enrolled at the University of Nebraska majoring in agriculture water science; and Kristan Hamilton, daughter of John and Becky Hamilton of Ozark, a senior enrolled at West Texas A&M University majoring in the equine industry.
