The 2016 Syracuse-Dunbar-Avoca Alumni Banquet was held May 27 at the Syracuse Middle School commons area.  
Attendees enjoyed a catered meal and entertainment by Matt Wilkinson who sang after dinner.
A scholarship has been given to selected graduates every year since 1979.  
Two recipients were awarded $500 each thanks to the support of alumni.  
Kaylee Meyer, daughter of Brian and Michelle Meyer, was awarded a scholarship and will attend Doane College studying Elementary Education.  
Matt Wilkinson, son of Robert and Lora Wilkinson, was also awarded a scholarship and will attend Doane College studying Music Education.
