Children of Ralph and Donna Conwell (Ralph and Donna Conwell Memorial Scholarship)
The Ralph and Donna Conwell Memorial Scholarship was begun in 1989 by Ralph Conwell, in memory of his wife Donna, to benefit Mapleton students pursuing higher education. Donna Conwell was a Teachers Aide at Polk and Nankin Elementary Schools and Ralph Conwell had served as a school board member at Polk Local Schools and was a bus driver for the Mapleton District. The Conwells had six children graduate from Polk and Mapleton High Schools and were active in many school, church, and community functions. The scholarship is awarded by committee to two students, and is open to Mapleton students planning to attend a two or four year college or university.
