Foundation awards scholarships

The Brown County Foundation awarded scholarships to eight graduating Brown County students, including Georgetown graduate Clinton McElroy. Shown from left are Ray Becraft, Brenda Layton, Mike Boyd, Clinton McElroy, Jim Bridges, Jeff Wiederhold, Julie McConn-Pirman and Betty Campbell.

The Brown County Foundation awarded college scholarships totalling $6,500 to eight graduating Brown County seniors. That amount could rise to $12,500 if students take advantage of renewable scholarships through the foundation.

Led by Ray Becraft, the Foundation handed out scholarships from three separate funds. From the Foundation’s general fund, one graduate from each of the five Brown County high schools was awarded a $500 scholarship. Winning scholarships were Randy Clark from Eastern High School, Chance Seibert from Western Brown High School, Megan Williams from Georgetown High School, Lindsey Davis from Fayetteville-Perry High School, and Mariah Haitz from Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington High School.

The Kathleen Stevens Memorial Fund awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Veronica Johnson of Georgetown High School, and both she and Georgetown graduate Clinton McElroy were awarded $1,000 scholarships from the Tony Becraft Memorial Scholarship fund. The latter two scholarships are renewable over the four years a student is in college. The Mr. B Memorial Scholarship is awarded to students who intend to major in engineering or education.

From the E.V. and Carl Stevens fund, Morgan Gast from Georgetown High School was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

The Brown County Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 charity organization. For more information about the foundation, contact Becraft at 937-378-3329 or Julie McConn-Pierman at 937-378-6165. The Foundation can also be reached by mail at PO Box 158, Georgetown, Ohio 45121.
