After creating an endowed scholarship last year with the Three Rivers Endowment Trust, the Sikeston Jaycees have made a $22,000 contribution to fully fund the $1,000 annual award to a member of the TRC Rodeo Team.
“Our organization is committed to advancing the sport of rodeo, as well as higher education in Southeast Missouri,” Jaycee President Jacob Rutledge said. “We are thrilled to make this investment that will provide financial assistance to TRC Rodeo students for perpetuity.”
The endowed scholarship fund will only award the interest earned from the fund, allowing perpetual funding for the scholarships. The Jaycees made their initial $5,000 installment for the fund last year.
“This scholarship will make a big difference in the lives of many TRC rodeo students for years to come,” said Michelle Reynolds, Director of Development and Executive Director of the Endowment Trust.
