Odd Fellows & Rebekahs award scholarships

Express Staff Writer

The Wood River Odd Fellows & Rebekhas Scholarship Fund has awarded several scholarships to graduating seniors in the Wood River Valley. Three are new scholarships of $1,000 given to Ruben Wagner and Doug Beal, both Silver Creek Alternative School students pursuing continuing education, and Franciso Romero Valeria, a Wood River High School graduate.

The renewal of scholarships was made to Amy Lyttle, Brandan Sylvia, Erin Moulton and Jozey Mitcham.

The scholarship endowment fund was established in 1996 by members of Alturas Lodge No. 13, International Order of Odd Fellows, and the Snowdrop Rebekah Lodge No. 17 with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their Ketchum meeting hall. The endowment is invested and handled by the Idaho Community Fund in Boise. The two organizations were established in the Wood River Valley in the early 1800s to do good works, care for the elderly, visit the sick and educate the young.

This year the scholarship fund was assisted in achieving its goals by the generosity of Carol and Randy Updyke.
