Owen awarded scholarship

Owen awarded scholarshipCongratulations to Bethany Owen on being awarded the Jeff Elder Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00.
Jeff lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer in December of 2010 and the following summer a Memorial Golf Tournament was started in his memory. The Memorial has continued each summer as a thank you to all of the generous participants. Jeff’s family wanted to give back to the community by presenting a one-time scholarship to a graduating senior whose life has been touched by cancer.
Pictured with Bethany is Bruce Elder, Jeff’s brother, and Debbie Elder, Jeff’s widow.
