The Morro Bay Branch of the American Association of University Women has awarded its annual Mildred Logan Scholarship to Amanda Ramos, a first-year nursing student at Cuesta College.

Having recently lost her father, Ramos is pursuing a career as a hospice nurse. She will train at Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton.

South County

Joe Malone, an Eagle Scout from Boy Scout Troop 413 in Arroyo Grande, recently built an American flag drop-off box for unserviceable flags and dedicated it to the Oceano/Five Cities Elks Lodge No. 2504. The project was part of the requirements for completing his Eagle Scout rank.

The flag drop-off box is located in the Elks parking lot next to the entrance to the rest area.

The collected flags are given to local Boy Scout units and Scout camps, where the flags are properly disposed of in a flag retirement ceremony.
