  • For a fourteenth straight year, Simon Youth Foundation, a national nonprofit that provides educational opportunities for at-risk high school students, will award a college scholarship to one student from every community that is home to a Simon property.
    Any student who graduated in the class of 2014 and lives within 50 miles of a Simon property — Osage Beach Premium Outlets — was eligible. The program awards a one-time scholarship of up to $1,500 to students who plan to enroll in an accredited college, university, vocational or technical school.
    “Our mission is to ignite hope for a brighter future in students, and our Foundation is proud to partner with Osage Beach Premium Outlets to award scholarships that will remove some of the financial obstacles that would otherwise prevent a student from achieving the dream of a college education,” says J. Michael Durnil, Ph.D., the President and CEO of SYF.
    Osage Beach Premium Outlets, a Simon Center, is proud to award this year’s scholarship to Casey White of Sunrise Beach. White will be attending Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton, Fla.
