Each year, the Carver Birthplace Association holds a dinner commemorating the life and legacy of Dr. George Washington Carver. The 2017 George Washington Carver Commemorative Dinner will be held at Crowder College, Neosho, MO., in the Farber Center on Saturday, January 7th, 2017. January 5th, 2017 will be the 74th anniversary of Dr. Carver’s death.
Funds from this dinner are used to sponsor the yearly $1,000 Scholarship given in Dr. Carver’s honor. Each year we give the scholarship to a deserving young person that meets the criteria set forth by CBA. The application, which includes the scholarship criteria, will be posted online.
Please plan to attend and help us celebrate the life of Dr. George Washington Carver. Agenda and speakers will be announced and posted to FB and the CBA website: www.carverbirthplaceassoc.org. For more information please call: Executive Director, Ann McCormick at 417 325-4151 Ext. 276
Your tax deductible donations to the Scholarship fund are very much appreciated.
