William Woods University student Taylor Oestreich of Fulton, Mo., is the recipient of the 2012 Commerce Bank Scholarship for $1,000 through Missouri Colleges Fund (MCF). This scholarship is awarded to students with demonstrated contributions to their school.
Missouri Colleges Funds assists private colleges and universities in Missouri by working with private donors to secure scholarship opportunities.
Oestreich is a junior at William Woods University, majoring in special education. He is corresponding secretary of Phi Gamma Delta, a Freshman Advantage Mentor and an Orientation Mentor. He was named one of three Outstanding Freshmen of the Year in 2011.
He also is a Special Olympics coach, a cause near and dear to his heart. Oestreich says the youngsters he coached in Special Olympics made him want to spend his life working with children who are not as fortunate as others. He says they teach him how to be respectful and enjoy the small things in life.
