DELMAR SENIOR JOVON EBERHART AWARDED SCHOLARSHIP

WHEATLAND (IOWA) Jovon Eberhart, a senior at Maquoketa High School, has been named this year’s local F&B Communications $500 scholarship winner.

Eberhart plans to attend Drake University, Des Moines, in the fall to pursue a degree in pharmacy.

Eberhart is an outstanding student and exemplifies the characteristics of the F&B Communications scholarship with her school and community involvement and academic achievements, said Ken Laursen, general manager.


High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local telephone service area were eligible for the $500 award. Students submitted an application form and three finalists were selected for in-person interviews.

“Jovon is a model student and show's promise for a bright future,"
said Laursen.

“We’re proud to present her with this scholarship to help her continue her education at Drake.”

A primary goal of the scholarship is to ensure that our community’s children have the privilege of attending college and encourage young people to return to rural areas after graduation, said Aaron Horman, marketing manager.

In her application essay, Eberhart wrote of her intentions of returning to eastern Iowa. She also expressed an interest in becoming a community leader with a strong desire to promote affordable health care services and medication for people with limited incomes.

The local F&B scholarship was started in 2003 because the Board of Directors and employees of F&B are committed to the education of local youth and believe learning is a lifelong process.

Eberhart’s parents Joseph and Da Vonne subscribe to F&B telephone service in the Delmar exchange.

F&B Communications is the premiere local telecommunications provider offering telephone, long distance, digital video, dial-up Internet, high-speed DSL Internet and wireless PCS services to customers in the Bennett, Calamus, Delmar, Lowden and Wheatland exchanges and surrounding areas.
