Each year, Lincoln Area Retired School Personnel (LARSP) awards scholarships to graduating seniors in the Lincoln area who plan to pursue a career in education. This year’s recipients of the $1,000 scholarships were Jacy DuPont and Madalyn Rushing from Lincoln Southwest High School. Jacy (pictured at center) was present at the group’s May meeting to receive her scholarship presented by scholarship committee members Gayle Alexander (left) and Cheryl Frederick. DuPont will major in elementary education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and expressed her appreciation for this support from former teachers to a future teacher. Rushing, who will also major in elementary education at UNL, was unable to attend the scholarship presentation.
