Class of '77 awards scholarship
At their 35th class reunion last summer, members of the Mid-Prairie Class of 1977 decided it was time to give back to their communities and, through personal donations, two causes were established.
Greta Kos, daughter of Kevin and Sue Kos of rural Kalona and graduating senior from the Mid-Prairie Class of 2013, received the first-ever scholarship award established by the Class of 1977. Criteria consisted of class placement in the top 50 percent, attendance at a two- or four-year school in Iowa, and a parent or grandparent being an alumnus of Mid-Prairie.
The Washington County Relay for Life also benefited through a $500 donation from the class honoring class members who have battled cancer and will be recognized for their support as a sponsor during the 2013 relay events.
