We're always proud supporters of the youth in our communities, but this year we kicked it up a notch!
The graduates of 2020 faced a new set of hardships as they finished out their Senior Year. Senior proms, senior trips, spring sports, and graduations have all been altered or cancelled by the COVID-19 pandemic. We can't begin to imagine how hard it must have been to miss out on so many culminating events.
WE WANTED TO HELP.
In honor of our past CEO and President, ODeen K. Redman, THREE additional $1,000 scholarships were opened up this spring. ODeen was a champion for the youth in our communities. He would have been proud of the resilience our youth has shown during these difficult times.
To apply for the additional scholarship opportunity, local students across the region submitted personal videos online. They were encouraged to show us what they have learned from being at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. We received a variety of fun, entertaining, and heart-felt submissions. The winners (in no particular order) are listed below. We hope you enjoy watching their videos as much as we did!
