SIDNEY — The Altrusa International Inc., of Sidney, has named its 2019 scholarship recipients.
Three grants of $1,000 each were presented by Altrusa Vice President Christi Thomas to Sidney graduate Brandi Motsinger, Anna graduate Jarred Seigle, and Russia graduate Hannah Vallandingham.
Motsinger, daughter of Timothy and Bonnie Stockstill, currently attends Tiffin University and is nearing the end of her studies in forensic psychology and addiction counseling.
Seigle, son of Jim and Amanda Seigle, is set to attend the University of Toledo to study mechanical engineering.
Vallandingham, daughter of Josh and Lora Vallandingham, is set to attend Miami University to study secondary education with a goal of teaching math or English.
The club’s scholarship committee annually solicits applications through the media and high school guidance counselors in Shelby County and the Career Center. Students who have graduated from other high schools but have lived in the county for at least five years are also eligible for consideration as are Shelby County students who are presently furthering their education in a university or trade school.
All applicants are evaluated on need, academics, strength of references, school and community activities, and volunteerism.
Funds used to award the scholarships were procured through donations, a grant, and the club’s adult spelling bee.
