The Belton Historical Society Honors Top Scholars

Posted by Jason W on Thursday, 09 May 2019 at 11:01 AM

The Belton Historical Society announced and presented the 2019 scholarship recipients at the Belton High School Scholarship and Awards Ceremony at Memorial Station.  Believing that these students will go out into the world and/or perhaps return to Belton and create history for our community, five top students were awarded $1,000 scholarships.

Pictured are (back row) Scholarship Committee members:  Karen Calvert, chairperson, Rob Powell, president, Jackie Kreisel, Elaine Wilson, Sally Smith and Charlotte Bradley.  The scholarship winners were: Grace Dunlap, Daniela Sanchez, Josie Cross, Gabrielle Stoddard and Tara Hartenbower.

The Belton Historical Society strives to welcome newcomers to their organization by making the museum and the study of local history relevant to today’s residents.  It is hoped that others will join the society and contribute to “making history in Belton”!
