Graduating high school seniors of the Schuyler County school district or students residing in Schuyler County who attend a school in a different school district are eligible to apply. One graduating senior will be awarded the Joanne S. Hayes Memorial Scholarship of $1,000 in June. The scholarship is awarded to a student continuing his or her education in special education or human services or a related clinical area such as nursing, psychology, speech pathology, or physical/occupational therapy, which will be used in a career providing supports to people with developmental disabilities. Joanne S. Hayes was a past board member and president of The Arc, who lived in Odessa before her death in 1987. She was a strong advocate for career and employee training. This scholarship is made possible thanks to local donations. Thank you for making The Arc your Charity of Choice.
