Sac Osage Retired School Employees’ Association met on Monday, March 20. The Nellie Nicholas Scholarship was discussed. Applications and guidelines were given to the Christian and R-II schools and the announcement was put in the papers.
A May 1 deadline was determined, with applications being sent to Evelyn Boyle at her 1405 S. Jackson address.
We have had many returning applicants, as well as new ones each year. We have been able to award approximately seven scholarships each year, each one with a value of around $2500.
Nellie was a dear member of our organization and she left a tremendous legacy with this scholarship for education majors. However, she did not wish this scholarship to be used for master’s work in education. President Evelyn Boyle gave her email address for those with questions: email@example.com.
The Scholarship Committee of SORSEA will meet after the May 15 meeting to go through applications and determine scholarship winners. It was determined that a newspaper article with picture will be posted and a social will be given for the winners.
