University supports local nonprofits

As a way of celebrating the work they do in our community, University of the Ozarks continued a recent Christmas tradition last week by donating a total of $3,000 to four local nonprofit organizations in Johnson County.

This year’s beneficiaries included the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Johnson County, Johnson County Youth Coalition, the Dolly Parton Imagination Library of Johnson County, and the Ozark Rape Crisis Center.

In 2015, the University began a new Christmas tradition of allocating funds normally spent on the production and mailing of thousands of University Christmas cards to support local 501c3 agencies. The nonprofits were nominated and selected by University faculty and staff members.

Among those who took part in the presentation last week were (from left), Reba Pridgin, representing Dolly Parton Imagination Library; Monica Price, representing Johnson County Youth Coalition; University President Richard Dunsworth; Sandy Nelson, representing Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund; and Dorinda Edmisten, representing the Ozark Rape Crisis Center.
