Six Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus students recently received scholarships from the Altus Sunset Rotary Club.

Recipients were: Samantha Vandiver, of Booneville, Business Technology; Brooke Roden, of Russellville, Nursing; Allyce Day, of Cecil, Cosmetology; Wayne Horne, of Paris, Automotive Service Technology; Dakota Askins, of Paris, Computer Information Systems; and Steve Holmsley, of Clarksville, Collision Repair Technology.

The organization previously hosted a scholarship benefit concert featuring Ozark native and Arkansas Tech alumnus Lance Carpenter.

Proceeds from the event combined with Rotary fundraisers, donations and matching grants helped fund the awards. This marks the third year the Sunset Rotary has benefited Arkansas Tech-Ozark students by awarding scholarships.
