Finley River Community Foundation honors scholarship winners

REAGAN GRIESSEL, a 2020 graduate of Ozark High School, received the Dennis Miller Memorial Scholarship through the Finley River Community Foundation.

The spring of 2020 has been certainly memorable for seniors at Ozark High School—in more ways than one for a group of scholarship recipients.

Finley River Community Foundation added another memorial endowment fund under their umbrella and granted $22,400 in scholarships and renewals from 13 named scholarship funds for 2020. Contributors were not able to celebrate with a gathering of scholarship donors and winners as has been done in prior years, but the Finley River Community Foundation does congratulate the following scholarship recipients:

Beadles, Pryor, McCoy Scholarship – Hannah Bottarel

Ryan Capps Memorial Scholarship – Grace-Anne Stine

Jack Carter Memorial Scholarship – Olivia Hulse
