CHS Graduating Senior Scholarship Opportunities

Wilson-Covert Centennial Scholarship

Established by sons John Covert Wilson, Class of 1943 and Arthur Philip Wilson, Jr, Class of 1940

The Wilson-Covert Centennial Scholarship was given to honor Arthur Philip WIlson (Class of 1910) and Velma Covert Wilson (Class of 1909), born in 1890 in Polk and Platte Counties, Nebraska.  They were graduates of the Columbus High School as are their sons who gave this scholarship on the one hundredth anniversary of their late parents' births.  They provided their sons with the means to obtain what they had not: Baccalaureate degrees from the University of Nebraska and Southern Methodist University.

Two awards will be given of $1,000 each.
