Rita Swafford (at right) of Flippin was selected to be the first recipient of the South Shore Foundation Endowed Scholarship for math, science and technology at Arkansas State University Mountain Home. Here, she is shown on campus with Karen Wallace, vice chancellor for development. Mrs. Swafford was selected by the ASUMH Scholarship Committee.

The Arkansas State University Mountain Home Scholarship Committee has awarded a newly established scholarship to Rita Swafford of Flippin. Mrs. Swafford is pursuing a degree in Information Systems Technology. The scholarship she received is awarded by the Arkansas State University Foundation through a $100,000 endowment by South Shore Foundation of Flippin. The funds are designated for students who study math, science or technology.

Mrs. Swafford began attending ASUMH last year when she was laid off after working 17 years for the same company. The layoff provided assistance to earn a certificate, which Mrs. Swafford completed. She then decided to pursue a degree on her own. She is married to Tim Swafford, has one son, Billy Endres, and one grandchild.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must reside in Baxter, Marion, or Boone counties and be enrolled in a math, science or technology program or in education to teach math, science or technology. The scholarship is renewable for up to four semesters. For more information about the South Shore Endowed Scholarship, contact the ASUMH Financial Aid Office.

South Shore Foundation is the charitable foundation of Northern Arkansas Telephone Company, a family-owned and operated independent telecommunications company serving portions of Marion and Boone Counties. Trustees of the South Shore Foundation are leaders in business, government, and education in the area served by NATCO.
