Allyson Carr, senior at Greenwood High School recently received the Cecil L. Smith Scholarship for $5,000. This scholarship has been made possible by the Vinitia C. and Cecil L. Smith scholarship fund administered by Communities Foundation of Texas. The Smith family has had roots in the Greenwood area for many years. It is in remembrance of their struggle for Cecil’s college education and in appreciation of life’s blessings that Cecil and Vinitia have chosen to assist young people in their quest for a college education. It is their hope that in turn these scholarship recipients may some day help someone else. They have generously provided this scholarship to a graduating senior since 1987.

Allyson is the daughter of Rick and Mona Jones. She plans on attending Missouri State University and major in sports medicine. Allyson is a member of the National Honor Society, Beta Club, FBLA, Partners Club, and Senior Seminar. She also plays on the soccer and volleyball teams.
