Attention BHS ‘62 classmates! As year end approaches and you’re thinking about gifts, please consider a donation to the Berea High Class of 1962 Scholarship fund at Berea’s The Education Foundation (TEF). This fund was started just before our 50th reunion in 2012 and has now made annual $500 grants to BHS seniors in the classes of 2012-2015. Recipients are chosen on the basis of need, community service, and grades, and all went off to college and are continuing.
Thanks to several consistent donors from ’62, the fund is now just over $10,000. As you may know from the TEF newsletter, in addition to scholarship aid, there are many worthy Berea School District projects for which TEF provides funding.
To learn more about the scholarship or to make a donation, go to http://www.educationfoundationberea.org/bhs-class-of-1962-donation.html
P.S. We’ve asked the 4 scholarship recipients to update us on their activities & plans, and to let us know if ’62 might be of any help with their career. If/when we hear some news, we’ll pass it on.
Thanks to all classmates who have donated to the Berea High ’62 Scholarship fund, which is housed at and administered by The Education Foundation in Berea. As of this date the BHS ’62 fund stands at $8814.20, up about $700 from two years ago and after three $500 scholarship awards to graduating Berea High Seniors.
Our May, 2014 awardee is Sarah Strinker, Berea High ‘2014. Sarah is now a freshman at Ohio University, Athens, pursuing a Global studies: War and Peace major and planning to double major in Political Science. At Ohio U., she’s a member of the Marching 110. She’s written to the ’62: “This scholarship helped me broaden my horizons from my academic focus and allowed me to participate in the 110 where I have made lifelong connections and incredible memories.”
Our May, 2013 awardee is Samantha Carson, who was a cheerleader and dance group member at Berea High before graduating from BHS in 2013. Samantha matriculated at Ashland University in Ohio and is majoring in biology. At Ashland she’s a member of Delta Zeta sorority whose purpose is to promote the values of sisterhood through scholarship, community service and social events.
Our first awardee, Danielle Wolfe, BHS ’12, is at Heidelberg University in Ohio where she has excelled by being named to the Dean’s List consistently. Majoring in English, she’s served as a Resident Assistant and a member of the Executive Board of Heidelberg’s chapter of the Ohio Student Educators Association. The chapter’s purpose is to improve the teachers of the future, the Heidelberg community and the local community through professional development opportunities and community outreach activities.
The Class of 1962 should feel good about these recipients and the role the Class is taking in helping to advance the educational opportunities of the younger generation in Berea.
At the May Scholarship award assembly at Berea High, the first ’62 Scholarship was awarded to Danielle Wolf, Berea High ’12.
