The Marion Chamber Foundation recently announced the formation of the Jana Blackford Memorial Scholarship. Mrs. Blackford, in the photo top left, was a respected and loved member of the Marion High School faculty who, through her Medical Professional Education classes, encouraged over 1,800 students to consider a career in the medical profession. The $25,000 scholarship will be awarded to a Crittenden County student pursuing a career in the medical field beginning with the class of 2018.
