Congratulations to Jaclyn Cantrell. She is the recipient of the 2010 Dr. Joe McAdoo Memorial Scholarship.

Cantrell, a junior at Drury University, is majoring in speech communication and international political studies and expects to graduate in May 2012.

The $1,000 scholarship is presented annually to a full-time undergraduate or graduate student and selection is based on interest and involvement in communications, academic standing and campus and/or community involvement.

Dr. Joe McAdoo is a founder and past president of the Public Relations Association of Springfield (which evolved into SWMO PRSA) and former chair of the Department of Communication at Drury University. He was committed to fostering educational opportunities that maintain the distinction and integrity of the public relations profession.

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks manages the scholarship fund.
