Victor Manuel Rodriguez, son of Jose Manuel and Angelica Rodriguez of Lonoke, was selected by the Lonoke High School Faculty committee to receive the scholarship this year to receive the L.C. "Mac" McCrary Scholarship.

The L.C. "Mac" McCrary family has made the $500 scholarship available. It is given in memory of Lemuel E. McCrary III. Students must attend an accredited four-year college or university. A written essay of 500 words was the major factor in the selection of the winner. The topic for this year’s essay was: "How has the community of Lonoke helped shape your character?"

Victor is ranked ninth in a class of 142. He plans to attend Arkansas State University at Jonesboro this fall and major in Engineering.

Lonoke High School would like to thank the McCrary family for making this scholarship possible.
