Deveante Davis, of Warren, recently was awarded an American Legion Post 111 scholarship.

Davis, a student at the University of Arkansas at Monticello College of Technology-Crossett, is in the United States Army Reserves and will be graduating from the Electromechanical Technology-Instrumentation program in June.

He received the $500 scholarship based on his academic performance, character, and strong work ethic, according to Linda Rushing, vice chancellor of the UAM CTC-Crossett campus.
