The recipient must have a “C” average and be in the upper half of the graduating class, exhibit good character and ability in his/her chosen field, attend an accredited
institution of higher learning, have the personal characteristics needed to work well in his/her chosen field, and be considered academically qualified to complete his/her course of study.

Dolores M. Ryner
The next scholarship is given in memory of Dolores M. Ryner, 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 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 Matthew Young. Matt plans to attend University of Missouri and major in Business.
