[05/29/20]   Walter L. and Viola M. Ross Scholarship recipient for the 2019-2020 school year is Bailee Clarkson.

The Walter L. and Viola M. Ross Scholarship is a $2,000.00 scholarship awarded each year to an Akron High School graduating senior.

Walter and Viola were early Washington County settlers and pioneers, who homesteaded in the sand hills 14 miles north and 1 mile east of Akron in 1913. They endured the Great Depression of the 1930s following the stock market crash of 1929. At the same time, the most severe drought on record hit Washington County and the entire High Plains region. Times were excruciatingly difficult for area farmers and ranchers, and many did not survive; however, with hard work, thrift, extreme perseverance, and the grace of God, Walter and Viola survived. The original homestead acreage remains in the family today.

In honor of his parents, a scholarship fund was established in 2002 by Walter and Viola’s youngest child, Glenn. The scholarship recipient is a student exemplifying high ideals with respect to honesty, courtesy, ambition, thrift, and a ‘pioneer’ work ethic.

Margaret (Ross) Russell of Longmont and Phyllis (Ross) Kraich of Akron are Walter and Viola’s only living grandchildren. They and their families are honored and proud to award the scholarship to a young adult each year that embodies the strong character and pioneer spirit of their grandparents.

This year’s recipient of the Ross Scholarship is Bailee Clarkson. Bailee is planning to attend North Central Technical College in Kansas to major in culinary arts. She is the daughter of Brandi and Josh Rahe of Akron and Arnulfo Ortega of Lamar. Bailee was an active student at Akron High School. She was a three-sport athlete all four years, participated, and was successful, in FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), and was Student Council President for three years. The dedication that Bailee showed while attending Akron High School will no doubt continue as she pursues her dream of becoming a chef.
