Christian Girls Rock (CGR), a local nonprofit organization, is honoring several “Men on a Mission” from HSC at the group’s annual banquet. The event will be held Saturday, April 4 at the Malvern Community Center. Funds from the event will fund a scholarship that was started in memory of Ethon Allen Boyer V who was killed Oct. 31,  2006 in a plant explosion. The group's mission is to help give local students a scholarship to help further their education. Scholarship applicants must be a senior at Malvern High School with a 2.5 grade point average. Applications may be picked up in the guidance office at a Malvern High School.
This year’s honorees are George Miller Smith (Man of Integrity Award), Malvern Fire Department (Men of Courage Award), Billy Hunter (Man of Inspiration Award), David Kizzia (Man of Faith Award), Ozie Brian Clegg (Man of Strength Award), Dr. Shawn Purifoy (Humanitarian Award), pastor Henry L. Mitchell (Man of Success Award) and Dr. Stephen Schoonmaker (Ethon Allen Boyer V Advocacy Award).
Iris Clegg, CGR founder, said the honorees were chosen because of the differences they’ve made in the community.
