The holiday spirit of giving and helping others was on full display during the Lake of the Ozarks Newcomers/Longtimers December luncheon. The group, which consists of more 250 women from around the Lake area, awarded three students from Columbia College–Lake of the Ozarks with scholarships totaling over $7,500.
Nursing program students Tara Milo (Eldon, Missouri), Katie Sharp (Sunrise Beach, Missouri) and Timothy Davis (Jefferson City, Missouri) were each awarded $2,500 scholarships following a stringent application and interview process. Funds for the scholarships were generated via the group’s 2017 Home Tour event the Newcomers/Longtimers facilitate during the course of the year.
“It truly is an honor to have our students recognized by an outstanding community organization like Newcomers/Longtimers and we are grateful for their generous scholarships the group provided,” Lake of the Ozarks location Nursing Coordinator Sara Riley said. “This is a high-quality group of students who were recognized and we look forward to watching them grow in the nursing profession.”
