Congratulations are in order to three area students who were recently awarded $500 scholarships by the Muskogee County Republican Party.

"The scholarship recipients were chosen based on their involvement in the community and local schools", said Ken Doke, one of the scholarship committee members. "We also took into consideration their GPA, future plans, and their knowledge of the current political climate," said Doke.

Scholarships were awarded to the following students, and can be used at the college or university of their choice.

  • Ashley Curran - Hilldale High School
  • John Trey Bennan - Muskogee High School
  • John Cody Kilgore - Fort Gibson High School
