The Bastrop Optimist Club recently interviewed three local upcoming high school graduates for it's annual Buddy Henderson Academic Memorial Scholarship.
The 21st annual scholarship finalists were Emily Downs of Ouachita Christian School and Anne-Marie Ogden and Kristen Oliphant, both of Prairie View Academy. The seniors gave a five minute interview to the general Bastrop Optimist Club membership April 12.
Based on the finalists' previous scores and their interview score, Kristen Oliphant was chosen as the winner of the 2013 scholarship. She will be presented her scholarship at the PVA graduation.
The Optimist Club congratulates each finalist on their skills that have been shown during their high school years and wish each of the finalist good luck in their college pursuits.
