REPUBLICAN WOMEN OF MARION COUNTY SCHOLARSHIP FUND
In October, 2015, KAREN WAGGONER, passed away. Karen served as an RWMC Officer, chaired several committees including the Legislative Committee. Karen received her Master’s Degree in Education at the University of CT. In 2003, her book, "On My Honor, a Navy Wife's Vietnam Story" was published. She valued education and was very involved in getting the scholarship off the ground.
In September, 2018, SHERRIE PARKIN, who was the Chair Person of the scholarship fund passed away. Sherrie has also been a long time member and very active in the Republican Women of Marion County. She and Karen Waggoner were very good about keeping RWMC informed of legislative issues. Sherrie also believed education was key to a good future. She authored a book titled “Footprints and Sage”. Upon moving to Flippin, AR, she became active and joined a writer’s guild, she also authored a weekly column in The Mountain Echo called “Over 65 and Under Foot”.
In 2018, after much consideration, the Republican Women changed the name of the scholarship to show tribute and memorialize all the wonderfully talented women who have served and given their time, talent and treasure to promote the values of Republican Women of Marion County. Each one believed education was important and education could make a difference if opportunity was given. RWMC feels this is a good way to get involved with the youth and provide a positive, conservative influence in the community.
Applicants will hopefully become involved in a local Republican Women of Marion County club, participate in activities, and become involved in Teenage Republicans, College Republicans, Marion County Republican Committee or other conservative organizations that promote the platform of the Republican Party.
The Republican Women of Marion County Scholarship can be used toward tuition, books or supplies. RWMC will supply the college, University, or Trade School with the funds on behalf of the recipient. This award must be used within one year.
