Two Scholarships are awarded annually in the name of Dewayne Ballentine and the Class of 1959

The Class of 1959 Scholarship began in 2019 by class members and friends, in honor of their 60th anniversary to recognize Homer Community Schools for providing them a quality education.
Kathy Hickerson-Mills Scholarship Fund
The Kathy Hickerson-Mills Scholarship Fund was established by her family after her death in 2010, for the purpose of providing scholarships to Homer Community Schools graduating seniors pursuing postsecondary educational opportunities, including apprenticeship and certificate programs, at Kellogg Community College who do NOT rank in the top 10 of graduating seniors. Funds may be used for expenses incidental to attaining educational objectives, including, but not limited to: tuition, fees, books, housing, testing, transportation, or childcare.
