PR-B's Lawrence wins $20,000 scholarship

The Marshall H. and Nellie Alworth Scholarship Fund announces that Pine River-Backus High School student Isabel Lawrence has been awarded the $20,000 scholarship.

Scholarships were awarded to 70 high school seniors in April 2013 who have demonstrated outstanding scholastic ability and plan to major in the sciences or mathematics. These students will each receive $5,000 for the 2013-14 academic year with renewal opportunities for up to three additional years.

Marshall W. Alworth established the scholarship fund in 1949 as a memorial to his parents.
