[May 19, 2012]  STANFORD -- Every year, the Olympia Ministerial Alliance awards scholarships to area seniors at graduation. This year, the group awarded two scholarships: $750 each to Hannah Bauersfeld and Shelby Crump.

Hannah is the daughter of Rick and Jennifer Bauersfeld of McLean. Hannah will attend Hope College in the fall to study elementary education or nursing.

Shelby is the daughter of Jeff and Amy Crump of Armington. Shelby will pursue her higher education at Heartland Community College and will study biology.

The scholarship winners received their awards at the Olympia baccalaureate service Friday evening.

The scholarship is named the Scott Ewing Memorial Senior Scholarship in honor of Scott Ewing, a youth minister from Minier who invested great time and concern in area young people. He was tragically killed in an automobile accident in December of 2004. The scholarship seeks to honor graduating seniors from Olympia High School who exemplify their Christian life and character at school, their church, within their community and with their life goals.

The Olympia Ministerial Alliance congratulates the recipients on their lives and achievement. It is the hope and intent of the alliance that the scholarship awards will be an encouragement to these young people as they pursue their future plans. The scholarship committee was fortunate to have many fine applicants to review.

This scholarship is funded by donations from churches, church-related groups and individuals in the Olympia area. Without their help, this scholarship would not be possible.

Anyone interested in donating to the scholarship fund may send their contribution to the Scott Ewing Scholarship Fund, c/o Pastor Kurt Walker, Hopedale Mennonite Church, 5192 Hopedale Road, Hopedale, IL 61747. For more information, call 217-648-2464.
