CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Nov. 12, 2014 – The Scott City, Missouri, High School Alumni Scholarship has been established through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation.
The Illmo-Fornfelt-Ancell-Scott City High School alumni represented by Gary Miller, president, Sondra Spinks, treasurer, and Janet Bockting, corresponding secretary, made a $10,000 gift to endow the scholarship. Their gift will be matched with an additional $10,000 through a University matching gift program.
The matching gift program is part of the Honoring Tradition – Inspiring Success Comprehensive Campaign through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation. This program allowed donors to make a minimum commitment of $5,000 to a maximum commitment of $10,000 through donation or pledge by March 1, 2014, that qualified for a $1-for-$1 match.
The renewable Scott City, Missouri, High School Alumni Scholarship will be awarded to a Southeast Missouri State University student who is a graduate of Scott City High School. The student will be entering their second year at the University with a declared major. A minimum 3.0 grade point average is required. The recipient will be selected by the University Scholarship Committee.
For additional information on the matching gift program, please contact the Southeast Missouri University Foundation at (573) 651-2203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
