The Quad Cities Rotary Club of Sharp County, Ark. met Monday, June 8 at the Pill Box Café in Highland and awarded Highland High School Class of 2020 graduate Gracie Ingram, daughter of Tausha Ingram of Ash Flat and David Ingram of Salem, a $500 scholarship to go toward her continued education expenses. Gracie will be attending Ozarka College in Ash Flat in the fall of 2020. After completion of an associate’s degree with an emphasis in Marketing and Banking from Ozarka College, Ingram plans to complete her bachelor’s degree at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. “I am excited to stay close to home and attend Ozarka College for my basics.” Ingram said. “I really love the idea of banking and marketing and Ozarka has the perfect program for me. It just makes good sense to stay close to home!”

The Quad Cities Rotary Club of Sharp County congratulates and wishes the best of success to Gracie on her scholarship and future endeavors. “The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our future community leaders is likely one of the most important aspects of our Rotary club.” Said President Ethan Barnes. “Our community is full of all-stars and we are proud to select Gracie to benefits from our club’s goals. We strive to build future leaders, and Ms. Ingram is a future leader.”

If you have a senior graduating in 2021, please be on the lookout for next year’s scholarship application. Contact your student’s curriculum counselor for more information.
