David E. Harrell Memorial Scholarship

Presented by SEMARC

Caleb Boe KDOZK and Mrs. Jenny Harrell

Mrs. Jenny Harrell presents the first David E. Harrell Scholarship to Caleb Boe KDOZK.

SEMARC has established a $1000 scholarship for 2022 in support of an area high school senior who is a licensed amateur radio operator and will be attending a two-year or four-year technical school, college or university. The scholarship is offered to seniors at the following schools:
  • East Ridge
  • Hastings
  • Math and Science Academy (Woodbury)
  • New Life Academy
  • Park
  • Simley (Inver Grove Heights)
  • South St. Paul
  • Woodbury, or
  • any home schooled student who lives in these districts.

The scholarship was founded in memory of SEMARC founder and first president David E. Harrell. He was instrumental in establishing the club as a non-profit organization in 1987. His passion was helping youth become interested in amateur radio and getting their first ham license. Dave worked more than 35 years at KSTP-TV, St. Paul, as a video control engineer, cameraman and studio lighting technician before retiring in 1991.
