Scholarships Awarded to Three Outstanding Seniors

Three J.Darin Loftis Memorial Scholarships were awarded to outstanding Calloway County Seniors. Receiving $1000 each were Lindsay Wagner, Lauren Wagner and Griffen Sheridan.  

Lindsay Wagner has exhibited leadership, service and academic excellence throughout her high school career. She plans to attend Murray State University, majoring in Exercise Science, eventually becoming an occupational therapist.

Dedicated to her community and school, Lauren Wagner will use her leadership, service and academic skills to pursue a career in speech and language pathology. She will begin her studies at Murray State University in the fall.

We were especially pleased to award a scholarship to the son of Darin’s former classmate, Marty Sheridan. Griffen Sheridan has demonstrated academic, service and leadership in the classroom and the community. He will attend Murray State University with plans to obtain a degree in Occupational Safety and Health.


Congratulations to the 2017 J. Darin Loftis Memorial Scholarship recipients.
