The Chariton Valley Scholarship Committee met in April to select the 2019 scholarship recipients. Applicants were carefully evaluated on their academic achievement, essay responses, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation. Again, this year, in partnership with the Foundation of Rural Service (FRS), two area students were each awarded a $2,500 scholarship.
With congratulations to these future leaders, Chariton Valley presents brief profiles of our 2019 Chariton Valley Scholarship recipients.
