Rick Bozwell Memorial Scholarship


The Rick Bozwell Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of Rick Bozwell by the Pocahontas Knights of Columbus.  He was a graduate of Sloan Hendrix High School.  Rick and Rita were faithful members of St. Paul Catholic Church and big supporters of youth and anything related to agriculture. They were growers of huge gardens and loved to share fresh produce. They also were caretakers of livestock and members of the local antique tractor club. Their love of kids, land, and nature were present in the daily lives of this humble couple.

The Pocahontas Knights of Columbus members “pray and hope this scholarship is helpful in advancing the love and devotion of agriculture in the recipient.”
