MAXVILLE - Three Wallowa seniors receive Amos Marsh Jr. Memorial Scholarship

Derek Shike, Rebekah Jamerson and Katelynn Burns were the 2012 winnners of the Maxville Amos Marsh Jr. Memorial Scholarship awarded by the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center.
Derek Shike, Rebekah Jamerson and Katelynn Burns were the 2012 winnners of the Maxville Amos Marsh Jr. Memorial Scholarship awarded by the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center.

Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center has awarded three Wallowa High School  seniors with the Amos Marsh Jr. Memorial Scholarship.

Rebekah Jamerson and Derek Shike were the main recipients of the award, and Katelynn Burns was granted an honorary award.

The scholarship was open to graduating seniors in the Wallowa and required students to demonstrate their scholarship, community service, and personal experiences with cultural diversity.

The Amos Marsh Jr. Memorial Scholarship is funded by LaDon Marsh, Amos Marsh Jr.’s nephew and a descendent of Maxville’s logging community.

“As someone who is very interested in sociology, diversity, and race relations,” said LaDon Marsh, “I believe these types of projects truly help shape the core being of any individual.”

Jamerson, awarded a $750 scholarship, will be attending Clackamas Community College to study marketing and advertising. She was Wallowa’s senior class vice president, the basketball team captain, a member of the National Honor Society, Rotary Interact and the Cougar Club.

Last summer Jamerson volunteered at the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center and lead tours at the Maxville Summer Gathering.

Derek Shike, awarded a $300 scholarship, plans to attend Yavapai College in Prescott, Ariz. to study marketing and business. He has been involved with Future Business Leaders of America, the National Honor Society, FFA and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Shike played football, basketball, and baseball at Wallowa.

Katelynn Burns, awarded a $50 honorary grant, will be attending Oregon State University, where she intends to study biochemistry and biophysics for pre-med.

Burns is a reporter for her FFA chapter and the treasurer/secretary for Wallowa’s National Honor Society, and she worked with the Mid-Valley Theater Company.

The award recipients applied for the scholarship with personal essays that explored cultural diversity and heritage in their community.

The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center hopes that these students continue to develop their thoughts on cultural diversity and how it affects their lives and communities.
