Parkway Retirees Association Awards Scholarships

The Parkway School District Retirees Association (PRA) recently awarded two scholarships to Parkway seniors who plan to pursue degrees in education.

A $3,000 PRA scholarship was presented to Bianca James (photo far left), a senior at West High School. She will attend the University of Missouri-Columbia in the fall.

A $1,500 scholarship from the “Joyce Srenco Memorial Fund” was awarded to Amber Stillman, (photo lower right), a senior from North High. She will attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City. 

Joyce Srenco taught for more than 30 years in Parkway as a first-grade teacher and was the founder of the gifted program. Joyce’s three daughters -- Joanne Minnihan, Elise Silverstein and Pam Wootton -- established the memorial fund to honor their mother’s memory and dedication to the teaching profession.
