The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas recently announced the Bill House Hereford Foundation Scholarship.

Swain William (Bill) House had a passion for agriculture and the cattle industry and wanted young people to have an opportunity to earn a career in agriculture.

His legacy will continue through the Bill House Hereford Foundation Scholarship fund, established to support students pursuing an agricultural-related degree, with preference given to students first, from Chautauqua and Cowley counties, second, from Kansas or Oklahoma and third, attending a Kansas or Oklahoma college, university or vocational school.

For more information about the scholarship or to obtain an application, contact Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas, PO Box 1448, Pittsburg, KS 66762, email, visit, or call (620) 231-8897.
