Fred Neuman Scholarship
The Alva Boys’ Choir, a volunteer vocal group for young male singers, has been conducted by Fred Neuman, Alva music store operator, for 36 years. The organization is recognized both within the city and well beyond for the wholesome experiences it provides for its members and for its positive representation of the community. Parents of members and former singers with the group established a scholarship fund to honor Neuman. The fund has grown through subsequent contributions and interest. The award is intended for a music major from Alva High School who has at least a 2.5 GPA.

Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Knox were career teachers who led students of Woods County and Alva in particular by both their instruction and their example. This scholarship was established by family and friends at the time of their fatal accident. This scholarship is awarded to a senior at Alva High School who will major in Science or Elementary Education, alternating each year. When the Knox’s passed away in a fatal accident, their family and friends established this scholarship.

Deidra Palmer Scholarship
Deidra Palmer was a graduating senior of Alva High School when she was tragically killed in an automobile accident. Because her dream of obtaining a college education was ended, her parents established this scholarship in her honor.
