The Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars is pleased to announce three new scholarships this year:
The Darr Family Scholarship goes to a student going into education and was established by Jim and Barb Darr, both long time educators at Redwood Valley schools.
The Class of 1969 Scholarship was established by the Redwood Falls Class of 1969 at their 50-year reunion last summer. It is RVHS’s first endowed scholarship from a former class.
The Gordy Jensen Memorial Scholarship was established by the Redwood Falls Sportsman’s Club as well as Tom Morley and Matt Morley in memory of long-time member Gordy Jensen. This scholarship goes to a student involved in the shooting sports and with a passion for conservation.
Other events that take place at the Evening of the Stars will be recognized in other ways this year. This includes four new inductees into the Redwood Area Schools Hall of Fame, and honorees for both the Redwood Area Education Foundation and Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars.
