In awarding this scholarship, Friends Board Chairman Sandy Chalmers said: "The city of Rogers has a long history of commitment to education. This still is evidenced today by the tremendous community support for its public school system. The Friends of the Rogers Historical Museum are honored to continue this commitment to education by presenting this scholarship to Caleb Campbell."

Campbell graduated from Haas Hall with a 3.75 GPA. During his high school years, he participated in Quiz Bowl, Model United Nations, Model Arab League and the Spanish Cub. In Model UN, he received Honorable Mention as an outstanding delegate. He was also a two-time All Star on the Quiz Bowl team.

To qualify for the Friends scholarship, Campbell was required to complete 100 hours of volunteer work. He completed the 100 hours yet continued to work at the museum. His activities included weeding the garden, helping move into the new museum, entering data and creating presentations.

As to the future, Campbell plans to attend the University of Arkansas. The areas he intends to focus on are supply chain management, macroeconomics and either psychology or U.S. history.
