Chris Stewart, our 2007 recipient from Benton High School (pictured on right), was able to take part in a trip to Santiago, Chile, to present at the VIII Latin American Symposium on Nuclear Physics and Applications. While there, his team presented some of the background information and preliminary results of the research that he has been doing over the past year and a half.
The Donna Kaye Smith Scholarship Fund was established through the generous gifts of family and friends of Donna Kaye Smith. Scott and Andrea Ralls, Donna’s son and daughter-in-law, wanted to find a way to memorialize the spirit and effort that Donna Kaye Smith exhibited every day just to live, and her love and compassion for those less fortunate. To that end they have, along with family and friends, created The Donna Kaye Smith Scholarship Fund.
This Scholarship Fund will be used to assist those, who otherwise might not have the opportunity, to attend college. Recipients of the scholarship shall be graduates of Benton High School in Benton, IL and the Project Morry Program, in White Plains, NY who show evidence of financial need.
