Pamela Hoots announced Wednesday that the second-annual Gene and Joyce Hoots Memorial Scholarship is now accepting applications.
The recipient must be a current student or alumni of Adair County High School, pursuing secondary education in a vocational field.
“We feel it’s very important to support technical and vocation schooling,” said Hoots. “There’s not scholarships for them and a lot of local students are going into it.”
The requirements are:
- Applicant has earned a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA). (Based on a 4.0 scale).
- Applicant has demonstrated community service.
- Submit application, validation of GPA, an essay about why they are pursuing technical or vocational education, an acknowledgement form and one letter of support (not completed by a relative). All should be submitted together.
Applications can be picked up at City Hall. April 30 is the deadline for turning all required forms in.
