The 2021 Bluegrass on the Arkansas event put on by the Salida Rotary was pronounced a success; so much so, that the organization is able to award $11,000 in scholarships to community members.

The list of recipients includes:

  • Norah Perkins Blackburn
  • Lily Anne Spezze
  • Lily Miyo Lengerich
  • Reece Katherine White
  • Sophie Harlan Pressly
  • Raley A. Patch
  • Daniel Alden Richardson

The scholarships are sent directly to the college where the student is attending and is applied towards their tuition. Students were chosen by a committee after completing their applications.

Scarlett Massine of the Salida Rotary explained “I have been involved with Bluegrass since 2016 and chaired the event in 2017,2018 and 2019, and I believe I have never seen so many people [at our event] as this year.”

She continued “Besides having awesome entertainment and great weather on Saturday and minimal adverse conditions on Sunday, I believe that people were so ready to hear good music that they were there for Bluegrass on The Arkansas and made it a huge success.”
