HSWCHS Senior Jackson Ratcliff was surprised today with a presentation by McLarty Automotive Group of a $2,500 McLarty Drives Education Scholarship.  Jackson was nominated for his excellent leadership skills, academic rigor, commitment to citizenship and responsibility, honorary participation in Arkansas Governor’s School and Boy’s State, and his community involvement through organizations including NJROTC, Boy Scouts, local food pantries, and more. “We look for the well rounded student … Jackson excels at everything and is everything you want in a model student and a young person. I could go on forever about the way that he contributes to this school and his community,” said Chris Phares of McLarty Automotive Group of Benton today, as the check was delivered. Congrats to Jackson and family!

McLarty provides more than $20,000 per year to Arkansas students in scholarship dollars, one per month from September - May. Scholarships provided by McLarty Automotive Group are unique because they are based on multiple student characteristics and achievements. Officials from McLarty explained that they are hoping to fill the gaps with their scholarship opportunities for students that excel in providing a well rounded contribution of time and talent in an array of school, academic, and community initiatives. More than 500 student applications were received last year from schools across Arkansas. Scholarship applications are open to all school officials, and are available online, here.

Jackson received three different outstanding recommendations from HSSD staff members. The scholarship presentation today was provided alongside a surprise presence from his family. Media partners at KATV 7 News will feature the story in the coming days. Thank you McLarty for supporting HSSD students and families, and impacting the lives of graduates across Arkansas. We appreciate you!
