The Sedalia Student Leadership Council (SSLC), a group that was formed in the 2006-2007 school year, emphasizes community service and participates in a variety of service projects. The SSLC has also recognized several community leaders who model that same type of service.
The SSLC established a scholarship, for juniors or seniors in Sedalia, based on service to the community and leadership skills. Through the generous support of several individuals, businesses and service organizations here in Sedalia, the SSLC was able to award three $500 scholarships this year to Andrew Halsell, Miranda Meyer and Megan Ortmeyer. Andrew Halsell’s scholarship is awarded in the memory of Bob Wasson, former mayor of Sedalia.
Andrew, a student at Smith Cotton is the son of Beth and David Halsell and plans on attending the University of Missouri. Andrew plans to double major in Physics and Economics. Miranda is the daughter of Darlene and Rick Meyer. Miranda plans to attend Truman State University majoring in Mathematics. Megan is the daughter of Michell and Michael Ortmeyer. Megan plans to major in International Political Studies.
Donations for next year’s Scholarship drive are tax exempt and can be mailed to Jane McMullin, 416 West Third Street, Sedalia, Mo.
