Bryan College Students Awarded Rotary Scholarship

On a cold and rainy December 1st, the Dayton Rotary Club gathered at Bryan College for their annual Christmas luncheon. After enjoying a delicious meal, Rotary Club president Col. Brock Harris presented Bryan College president, Dr. Doug Mann with a check for $3,000 to fund this year’s Rotary Scholarship.

For decades, the Dayton Rotary Club has generously funded this scholarship to provide financial assistance to two freshman students who exhibit academic success. This year’s recipients were Zowie Coulter and Cayden Tipton. Zowie is studying Liberal Arts: Elementary Education so that she can fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher like many of the educators who poured into her life. Cayden is studying Mechanical Engineering and is eager to serve others through the skills that he is learning. Both students attended the luncheon and had the opportunity to express their gratitude to Rotary members.

Rotary members and guests were then treated to two selections from “The Nutcracker” performed by Piano Ensemble students Eliana Martin, Jillian McKinney, and Madeline Brown. Alumnus Felipe Arias ’95 then led attendees through a variety of Christmas Carols accompanied by Janice Pendergrass on piano.

“This event allows us to celebrate the relationship that Bryan College has with our Dayton community and its leadership, and it also allows us to celebrate our students,” said Dr. Doug Mann to attendees. “We thank you for your investment in the community, and Bryan College is thrilled to work alongside each of you in the work you do.”
