On July 1, 1993, Evans & Associates Enterprises purchased Miami Concrete and Green Country Concrete from Jeff & Betty Parrott. Jeff remained at the company for several years, becoming a trusted and valued friend to the company’s President, Jerry Evans. Mr. Evans passed away in 2002. In honor of his many loyal employees, the parent company established this scholarship in 2003. It is now the company’s desire to revise the scholarship in 2015 so that more funds can be distributed to deserving NEO students. Remaining a strong part of the Miami and Grove communities, the revision of this scholarship fund will provide more assistance to students as they pursue their education goals at NEO A&M College. To be eligible, the recipient may be an incoming freshman or a continuing student at NEO. There are no restrictions as to major of study. Preference will be given to the applicant who demonstrates leadership characteristics. The recipient must reside in Oklahoma and be a full-time student with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
