The Bank of Cave City and Lyon College recently announced the establishment of a new Bank of Cave City Scholarship program at Lyon College. Two graduating seniors from area school districts will be awarded a $2,500 Lyon College scholarship for the fall 2023 semester.
“We’re excited to encourage and reward local students for pursuing higher education,” said John Beller, president of the Bank of Cave City. “The college’s focus on citizenship and its faculty and staff help connect students to Batesville and the greater North Central Arkansas region.”
All graduating seniors from Cave City High School, Batesville High School, Southside High School, Hillcrest High School and Cedar Ridge High School are eligible to apply for a Bank of Cave City Scholarship.
"Small, private colleges have a very special, unique relationship with their surrounding communities,” said Lyon College Vice President for Advancement Dr. David Hutchison. “We are partners in sustainably growing our community, partners in progress and partners in mutually supporting each other. We are thankful for the vision that the leadership of the Bank of Cave City and other leaders have in our region for a stronger Batesville and a more vibrant North Central Arkansas.”
