The Jefferson County Single Parent Scholarship Fund recently awarded the Fall 2017 Entergy Corp. scholarships to Elishia Brown and Arlinda Clark.

Brown is attending the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and pursuing a degree in social work. Clark is attending Southeast Arkansas College and working toward becoming a nursing assistant. Both recipients are planning to graduate in May 2019.

These scholarships were made possible by a special grant from the Entergy Corp. through the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund. Based in Springdale, the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund is the parent organization of JCSPSF and a partner with the Entergy Corp.

The scholarships were based on academics, financial need, recommendation letters, essay quality and community service.
