The Ouachita Parish Women’s Republican Club presented the University of Louisiana Monroe with a check for $2,300 toward its endowed scholarship on Nov. 22, 2019.

With this donation, the scholarship fund totals $116,075.

The scholarship, now in its 36th year, is funded by the OPWRC’s annual salad luncheon. All proceeds from the event go to the scholarship.

“The Ouachita Parish Women’s Republican Club continues to support first-generation students through this endowed scholarship,” said ULM President Nick J. Bruno, Jr., Ph.D. 

Kay Kellogg Katz spoke on behalf of the OPWRC, “It’s the continuity and the commitment and the belief that what we are doing is good. This fund will benefit this fine university for years and years to come.”

Katz noted the club gave $4,000 in scholarships to ULM students in September.
