Walker receives a Black and Reeder Scholarship.

Tasha Walker, a recent graduate of Greenwood High School, has received a Black and Reeder scholarship to the University of Arkansas. The scholarship was established through an endowment by Sherman and Lynnette Reeder Black, both U of A alumni who attended Greenwood High School. The Blacks created this scholarship program to help Greenwood High students who are seeking engineering or business degrees at the U of A. One scholarship is awarded each year to a qualified graduating senior. The scholarship is renewable for an additional three years, as long as the student remains enrolled at the university and meets requirements, such as maintaining a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. Tasha Walker is the daughter of Brandy Bilderback of Springdale and Forrest Walker of Greenwood. She will be an incoming freshman at the University of Arkansas where she plans to major in small business management and entrepreneurship in the Sam M. Walton College of Business. Sherman Black is president and CEO of Rimage Corporation, based in Minneapolis, that which helps businesses deliver digital content directly and securely to their customers and employees. He graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. He is a member of the College of Engineering Dean’s Advisory Council and University of Arkansas Academy of Electrical Engineers. Lynette Reeder Black also graduated from the U of A in 1987, with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. The Blacks were inducted into the Towers of Old Main in 2011.
