McLarty Drives Education Scholarship awarded to Maumelle High student
Each month, we highlight a student who is doing all the right things inside and outside the classroom as McLarty Drives Education Scholarship winner.
The March winner, a senior from Maumelle High School, was recently surprised with a $2,500 check.
Dillon Telford is a dedicated student and is involved in band, baseball and various clubs and organizations. He also works at the new coffee shop at school. Dillon's teacher, Robert Ricketts, nominated him for this award, and he says Dillon always gives 100 percent.
Robert Ricketts says, "He's a student who stands out because he's not somebody who just wants to kind of get by with the status quo. He really wants to exceed at everything he does."
Dillon plans to go to college at Louisiana Tech. He says he'll major in marketing and will also enroll in the ROTC program there and will eventually go into the Air Force.
