The Old Settlers Reunion Association Scholarship for 2017 has been awarded to Kaylee E. Henderson. Kaylee will attend Kalamazoo College in the fall of 2017. Kalamazoo College, also known as K College, is a small, private liberal arts school in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Kaylee shared this in her application:
This scholarship is worth more than just money. This one, in particular, is more meaningful than any others I have applied to because I would be honoring my family while achieving a higher education.
I plan to give back to the OSRA by becoming a member like my parents and continuing to go to the reunions each year. I want the next generation in my family to understand their heritage.
As a recipient of this scholarship, I would be paying homage to my roots and all of my ancestors who have made my privilege of attending college possible.
