Reba McEntire will receive the 2018 Horatio Alger Award. She joins 11 other esteemed business, civic and cultural leaders from across North America, honored as leaders who have succeeded despite facing adversities, and who have remained committed to higher education and charitable efforts in their local communities.
“I always say that you need three things to succeed in life: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone,” says McEntire. “These qualities have served me well in every part of my life, and I have no doubt my fellow honorees would agree. I am honored to be inducted into the Horatio Alger Association, and I can’t wait to meet our 2018 Scholars and help them in any way I can to reach their own dreams.”
