Rees family creates scholarships for Rio
RIO GRANDE, Ohio -- With roots firmly planted in Gallia County, the Rees family has created a pair of scholarships to the University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College to honor their family and serve southeastern Ohio.
The Floyd Rees Memorial Scholarship and the Thelma Rees-Ohio Valley Bank Scholarship were made possible by $20,000 in gifts from Larry and Laura Rees.
Each scholarship is endowed at $10,000, with scholarships awarded annually through interest generated. Both scholarships may be granted for tuition, fees, books, room and board.
