Dylan Allen of Farmington has been awarded a scholarship through the BJC Scholars Fund, in the second class of honorees since the creation of the fund last year.
Allen is a graduate of Farmington High School, Mineral Area College, and is currently a student at Missouri State University in Springfield.
Open to high school seniors planning to pursue a two- or four-year degree at a public Missouri or Illinois state college or university, the BJC Scholars Fund offers awards of $10,000 per academic year. The annually renewable scholarship can be applied toward tuition, fees, room and board, transportation and incidental expenses.
“BJC wants to be a part of raising our community through higher education, and we don’t want finances to be a barrier to those dreams," said June Fowler, BJC senior vice president of communications, marketing and public affairs.
