The first scholarship winner of the Hannah Cole Family Scholarship was Shannon Dickerson of Moberly, MO. Pat Todd, president of the Cole Family Association (and grandmother of Shannon) presented the certificate to Shannon at the awards ceremony, May 15.
Shannon graduated from Moberly High School on May 17 in the top 5% of her class. She will be attending Central Methodist University in Fayette, MO on academic and soccer scholarships. She will be working toward a degree in Accounting.
Shannon’s parents are Kim and Bud Dickerson, her brother Sam is a sophomore at Moberly High; her grandparents are Bob and Pat Todd of Piedmont and Marilyn Morlan, of St. Joseph.
Shannon and Sam have worked at the registration table at the Cole Association reunion for several years, so if you have been at the reunion you will know who she is. Shannon is the great, great, great, great, great granddaughter of Hannah Cole, coming from Samuel and his 2nd wife Catherine’s youngest daughter Gilla.
Congratulations to Shannon for all of her achievements through her high school years and our best wishes for a very successful college career!
