Parkway retirees award 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 Kaitlyn Erehard, a senior at Parkway South High School. Erehard will attend the University of Missouri-Columbia in the fall.

A $1,500 scholarship from the “Joyce Srenco Memorial Fund” was awarded to South High senior Lea Finder. She will attend John Brown University. 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 six years ago to honor their mother’s memory and dedication to the teaching profession.
