The Oakdale Cowboy Museum is once again planning to present scholarships to deserving High School seniors in the Central Valley region. One of these scholarships will go a graduating senior whose family is a member of the Oakdale Cowboy Museum.
Scholarships are to be used at a two or four year college or university. The applicant must be actively involved in rodeo, livestock or animal production. This is a merit scholarship and is not based on financial need. Applicants must have an accumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
Scholarship applications are available through school counseling offices, on the museum website www.oakdalecowboymuseum.org or can be picked up in person at 355 E. F St., in Oakdale. All applications must be received by March 16, 2015.
The Oakdale Cowboy Museum opened its doors to the public in 1996. Since that time the Cowboy Museum Board of Directors and Staff have worked to develop a secure financial base that is culminated each year by their fundraisers.
“This success can only be the result of the incredible support the Museum has received from our community since its inception,” said Executive Director Christie Camarillo. “Without the community support and our growing Museum members and patrons, our success would not be possible.”
