Senior Brooke Rittman has been offered the University of Central Arkansas Distinguished Scholarship valued at $36,000.
She is the daughter of Kevin Rittman and Deanna Henderson.
Eligibility requirements for the scholarship include that a student earn 31-36 on the ACT or 2020-2400 on the SAT college entrance exams, or be a National Merit or Achievement Finalist or Semifinalist. A minimum grade point average of 3.25 in high school is also required, according to the UCA website.
Senior Brittany Davanzo has been offered the UCA Excellence Scholarship valued at $26,000.
She is the daughter of Carmen and Bridget Davanzo of Conway, the latter of whom teaches math at St. Joseph High School.
To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must earn 29-30 on her ACT, or 1920-2010 on her SAT college entrance exams and a 3.25 cumulative high school grade point average, according to the university’s website.
Senior Nathan Davidson, son of Chuck and Cindy Davidson of Conway, earned a $2,000 scholarship to the college of his choice after winning a duck-calling contest.
He received a replica of a famous duck caller for winning his age division in the 2012 Chick and Sophie Major Memorial Duck Calling Contest at Stuttgart on Nov. 23. The replica Nathan received is modeled after one first used by world renown duck-call maker Chick Major in 1939.
Both Brooke and Nathan are undecided about a career, but Brittany plans to study pharmacy.
