FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Beaver Water District Board of Directors recently awarded Steele-Croxton Memorial Scholarships to three University of Arkansas students.

Emily Sherrill of Rogers, and Jake Krier and Alyssa Ferri, both of Fayetteville, were chosen to receive Joe M. Steele & Hardy W. Croxton Memorial Scholarships for the fall 2019 semester. These scholarships provide financial assistance to upperclass or graduate students in the Departments of Civil Engineering, Biological and Agricultural Engineering, or Crop, Soil and Environmental Sciences who have demonstrated interest in drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, environmental or life sciences. Board Members donate board meeting attendance fees to the scholarship fund.

Sherrill finished her bachelor's degree in civil engineering earlier this year and is now a research assistant in the Asphalt Lab while working on a master's degree in civil engineering.

Jake Krier is a junior in the biological and agricultural engineering program.

Ferri is an honors senior majoring in environmental, soil and water science.

The scholarship fund is managed by the University of Arkansas. For more information about making a tax-deductible donation, contact Ethan Hayman, associate director of development for the U of A College of Engineering, at ehayman@uark.edu or call 479-575-6018.
