Smee awarded scholarship

Hayden Smee, a senior from Cape Girardeau Central High School, is the regional winner of a $1,000 scholarship awarded by FutureBuilders, the education foundation of the Missouri School Boards' Association.

MSBA and FutureBuilders established the scholarship program in memory of John T. Belcher, who was instrumental in developing innovative financing programs for Missouri school districts. A $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a student in each of MSBA's 17 regions. From that group a statewide winner will be selected. Applicants were judged on the basis of academic performance, extracurricular activities and the quality of an essay. More than 190 applications were submitted this year. The Missouri School Boards' Association is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help school districts succeed.
