The Bolivar High School Class of 2019 walked away with $31,125 in scholarships from the Bolivar Educational Advancement Foundation, according to a news release.

“The Foundation recognizes the achievement of these students and many others,” Kerry Douglas, BEAF founder and board president said in the release. “This year, the Bolivar Educational Advancement Foundation has awarded $31,125 in new scholarships. On behalf of the board, I wish the BHS Class of 2019 much success in their future endeavors and look forward to hearing how they’re making a positive impact in our world.”
