Courtney Hall, daughter of Neal and Dionna Hall, was honored at the Van Buren County Retired Teachers and School Employees Association meeting on May 16.

She was selected as the Retired Teachers Scholarship recipient for the 2023-24 school year. The award is $750.

Hall is enrolled at Arkansas Tech University for the fall semester. She is a 2023 graduate of Southside High School and she plans to study education and become an Arkansas elementary school teacher.

The education scholarship is awarded annually to a student from one on the county’s schools, who is majoring in education.
