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, a senior at West High School. James 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, 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 five years ago to honor their mother’s memory and dedication to the teaching profession.
