Foundation Honors Former Colleague with Memorial Scholarship

Published on September 1, 2021

The Ozarka College Foundation announces the creation of the Delynne Duerkes Memorial Scholarship to be awarded each year to a student attending Ozarka College - Ash Flat. Delynne's sudden passing has left a wake of outpouring from both faculty and staff and the Foundation is extending this opportunity for community members to support this scholarship in her memory.

"Delynne was welcoming, kind and helpful to every student who walked through her door, " said Dr. Chris Lorch, Ozarka College provost. "As the Administrative Assistant on our Ash Flat Campus, Delynne was oftentimes the link between students and their success of navigating the college life and she was always there to help. What better way to honor Delynne's dedication than by continuing to help students by establishing the Delynne Durerkes Memorial Scholarship. "

If you are a community member or perhaps a former employee or student impacted by Delynne's life and would like to make a memorial gift, contact the Ozarka College Advancement Department at or by calling 870.368.2059.
