The Dolores M Ryner scholarship is given in memory of a business teacher at Galesburg High School from 1953 until her retirement in 1981. After she retired, she kept in contact and wanted to know all about the changes in technology that were taking place in the business department.
After Miss Ryner’s death in December of 1996, she made a generous gift to the school district. That gift was a farm with the annual income to be used for a scholarship for a GHS student planning a career in business or business education. This year’s amount for the scholarship is $2,500. The student awarded this scholarship, may renew it for a total of four years by maintaining a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
Miss Ryner spent the greater part of her life helping young people, and through this scholarship, she continues to do so. It is my pleasure to announce that the Dolores Ryner Scholarship award goes to Rebecca Duncan. Rebecca plans to attend Butler University and major in Business.
