Each year, local college bound high school seniors may apply for the Joe Hilton Memorial Scholarship. If you are interested in this scholarship, please contact the Lodge for more information. Joe Hilton was a devoted Elk and attained the honorable status of Missouri State Elks President 1997-1998. He understood the importance of underprivileged students being allowed the opportunity of attaining a higher education. This scholarship was created in his memory so that his legacy will live on.
