The Wyandot County 4-H Endowment is providing 11 post-high school educational scholarships for county 4-H members.
Applications are reviewed and selected on the criteria of 4-H participation, leadership in 4-H and community activities, as well as scholarship in school and family need.
This year’s recipients were: Courtright Family Scholarship, Jana Kemerley, Carey High School; Indian Mill Antique Association Scholarship, Tyler Vent, Upper Sandusky High School; I. and D. Schoenberger Family Scholarships, Ethan Smalley, Upper Sandusky High School, and Kelsey Tschanen, Mohawk High School.
Endowment scholarships were awarded to Jenny Damschroder and Jana Kemerley, Carey High School; Lauren Bruynis, Kelsey Gregory, Brittany Molnar, Ethan Smalley and Tyler Vent, Upper Sandusky High School.
The 4-H Endowment continues to grow because of community support. There are two ways to make a donation, which may be earmarked in memory or honor of an individual.
Donations may be sent to the OSU Extension office locally or to the Ohio State University.
Those sent to the university must be earmarked with the Wyandot County 4-H Endowment Fund 667925 on the memo line of the check.
The Wyandot County 4-H Endowment is to raise funds through a benefit auction dinner Aug. 12.
Tickets are available from any committee member, 4-H Advisory Council or OSU Extension.
