A fundraiser is going to be held soon for a memorial scholarship in memory of the late Dwayne Morris, who was the owner of Mena Feed and Farm House Health Food Store in Mena. Kayla Walston, Morris’ longtime companion, wants to keep his memory alive and knows that helping kids was a passion of his. Also knowing the struggle that widowed parents have, Walston said, “We want to give the scholarship to a Mena High School Senior that has lost a parent.”
To build the scholarship funding, a BBQ Dinner with all the fixings will be held on September 10th at 6 p.m. in the Commercial Building at the Polk County Fairgrounds. The cost of the meal is donation only. Musical entertainment will be provided by Polk 74.
