[May 19, 2014]  Every year, the Olympia Ministerial Alliance awards scholarships to area seniors at graduation. 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 our area young people. He was tragically killed in an automobile accident in December of 2004. This scholarship seeks to honor those 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.

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.

This year, the Olympia Ministerial Alliance will be awarding two awards of $1000 each. It is our hope and intent that these awards would be an encouragement to these young people as they pursue their future plans.

The Olympia Ministerial Alliance is proud to announce this year’s award winners are Fraley Downey and Gabriele Meissner.

Fraley is the daughter of Chris and Tanya Downey of Armington. She will be attending Lincoln Christian University in the fall, with the intention of becoming a nurse through OSF St. Francis.

Gabriele is the daughter of Manfred and Rebecca Meissner of Minier. She will be attending the University of Minnesota, studying neurobiology and psychology.

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 Rd. Hopedale, IL 61747. For more information you may call (217) 648-2464.
