Starting in 2018, The Rosemary Myrick Memorial was able to award $1500 in college scholarship money. We were able to give one deserving Alcona Track athlete a $1,000 scholarship and Adeline (Rosemary's daughter) $500 towards her education account. Each year, we hope we can grow and give back even more. Our goal for upcoming years is to give out TWO (2) $1,000 scholarships to local students and to continue to add to Adeline's education account.
