Tipton Named by State Association as a Centennial Scholar

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

ParkTiptonThe Arkansas Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has named Park Tipton as a Centennial Scholar. The APTA Centennial Scholars Program is designed to identify and support a cadre of 100 physical therapists across the nation in developing future leaders in the profession. Dr. Tipton of Monticello and Dr. Philip McKelvy of Little Rock were the two physical therapists in Arkansas named as Centennial Scholars. This 12-month program will run throughout 2021 with a goal of engaging these scholars via live and virtual learning experiences. Additionally, each scholar will work to design and complete a capstone project in collaboration with the state chapter of the APTA that addresses an existing need related to physical therapy.

Tipton is appreciative of and excited about this opportunity, stating “I hope to be able to use my experiences in the Centennial Scholar program to foster growth in young professionals in our chapter as well as contribute to the growth of our state association. I am looking forward to collaborating and learning with other Centennial scholars to move our association forward, working better together.” (more…)

Drew County EHC Awards Academic Scholarships

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020
ECH

EHC Scholarship Committee Co-chairs pose with 2020 scholarship winners (L to R): Braden Taylor, Bree-Anne Lanthrip, Claudia Horton, Trenton Eubanks, and Dr Kay Walter

In a typical year, Drew County Extension Homemakers Clubs will award either a local graduating senior entering UAM or student currently studying there an academic scholarship, but 2020 has not been a typical year. In late spring when the EHC Scholarship Committee called for applications, local students had already been sent home to learn remotely. They struggled to compile the necessary documents and signatures which EHC requires for the scholarship application, and EHC extended their deadline to encourage students to complete the applications.

In the end, EHC received the strongest group of applications the scholarship committee has ever seen. The number of bright and promising young people in our community presented an exciting challenge. Choosing just one from among them to receive the scholarship seemed an impossible task. The committee could see that the viral pandemic has resulted in ever-growing monetary need among the families of young people seeking an education. (more…)
