This year, the Barry County Scholarship Committee awarded seven $1,000 scholarships to area students. The committee's 2011 heifer auction, which raises funds for the scholarship awards, was held at the Cassville High School FFA barn, located east of the football field, on Saturday. Scholarship winners were recognized at the start of the event.
