McKenna Bagley, a senior at Bentonville West High School, was selected to receive a $2,500 STAR Scholarship from the P.E.O. Sisterhood. She was recommended by P.E.O. Chapter DH of Bella Vista.

McKenna is pursuing a nursing degree and her goal is to become a physician's assistant. She is ready to take her EMT exam and will be working with the Bella Vista Fire and Ambulance Department this summer while taking college classes at NWACC.

The P.E.O. STAR Scholarship was established in 2009 to provide scholarships for exceptional high school senior women to attend an accredited post-secondary educational institution in the U.S. or Canada in the next academic year. The competitive STAR Scholarship is for women who exhibit excellence in leadership, academics, extracurricular activities, community service and the potential for future success.
