The Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars chapter is pleased to announce three new scholarships this year.

The Darr Family Scholarship goes to a student going into education, and it was established by Jim and Barb Darr, both long-time educators at Redwood Valley. 

The Class of 1969 Scholarship was established by the Redwood Falls Class of 1969 at its 50-year reunion last summer. It is the chapter’s first endowed scholarship from a former class.

The Gordy Jensen Memorial Scholarship was established by the Redwood Falls Sportsman’s Club as well as Tom Morley and Matt Morley in memory of long-time member Gordy Jensen. This scholarship goes to a student who is involved in the shooting sports program and who has a passion for conservation.

Other events that traditionally take place at the Evening of the Stars program will be recognized in other ways this year. This includes four new inductees into the Redwood Area Schools Hall of Fame and honorees for both the Redwood Area Education Foundation and Redwood Area Dollars for Scholars.
