Graduates Joel Burrow of Manila High School and Andrew McFarlin of Buffalo Island Central High School are the recipients of the 2018 scholarships presented by Big Lake Country Club. Each received a $500 scholarship.

This is the second year for the Big Lake County Club scholarships to be awarded.

Applicants had to write an essay, be on the high school golf team and be college bound.

Burrow has signed a letter of intent to play golf and baseball at Crowley Ridge College (CRC).

McFarlin's BIC golf team won three consecutive state titles. He plans to attend Arkansas State University.

Several members of the Big Lake Country Club scholarship committee were on hand Friday to present the checks and offer their congratulations to the young men.

“We want to support our young golfers and we hope to continue with the scholarship program,” Bruce Wilson said.
