Carol King, daughter of the late Evelyn Reed, recently established the Evelyn Reed Memorial Scholarship, through the Southwestern Community College (SWCC) Education Foundation, in memory of her mom.
With these funds, two scholarships will be awarded to non-traditional aged SWCC students who demonstrate financial need. Preference will be given to education majors with an interest in teaching mathematics.
Reed was a long-time math educator in the Orient and Creston school districts and King is currently a math educator at Creston Middle School. King was inspired to give these scholarships to help students continue their education no matter their age.
