For 24 Years & Counting...

ACSO/BOCA has had the privilege of approving hundreds of awards over the years, to assist young people of the Arizona ranching community. The names of all of the recipients are listed here and updated annually. Many young people are from the same family and many have been granted awards throughout all their years of furthering their education. BOCA, as well as the young people who benefit, is grateful to all who supported this organization in any way, making Bill's dream become, and continue to be a reality indefinitely.

* Toni Noel Tyree, 29, of Wickenburg, AZ and recipient of three ACSO scholarships, passed unexpectedly June 11, 2011. Shortly after, friends and family of Toni collected funds to establish an annual memorial scholarship in her honor. They entrusted the funds and selection process to the ACSO Board, and this award will continue as long as it is supported financially. Each year the Board weighs this selection heavily, with the single thought in mind that Toni would be proud of the young person selected. It is a great honor for the recipient and the award is in addition to the ACSO/BOCA scholarship award.
