The fourth annual Chris Waller Memorial Scholarship was recently awarded to seniors Wren Wiebe and Ashley Bressler. The scholarship is in the memory of Academic All-American and All-Conference basketball player Chris Waller.

“Marty and I are honored to present this year’s scholarships to Ashley Bressler and Wren Wiebe,” said Al Waller. “The Bressler’s have been family friends for years, and Marty had the privilege of having Ashley in the C of O Child Development Center when she was in preschool.  Wren has worked for Marty at the Child Development Center as her student work station, she has been member of our Women’s Basketball Team and she recently received the Chris Waller Outstanding Student Athlete Award at our Athletic Banquet.” 

The Chris Waller Memorial Scholarship was established by Al and Marty Waller in memory of their son, whom they lost in a car accident in December 2010. Chris graduated from Branson High School and attended College of the Ozarks from 1997-2001, where he majored in mathematics.

The scholarship is given to College of the Ozarks graduates who possess outstanding character and want to further their education. The money for the scholarship comes from interest off of the memorial endowment established in Chris’s memory.

Both Wiebe and Bressler fully met the requirements for the scholarship.
