Winners include: $2,000 – Aislen Setty, Graham; $1,500 – Benjamen Romie, Covington; $1,000 – Selena Weaver, West Liberty-Salem; and $500 – Grant Albers, Fort Loramie; Audrey Ayars, Mechanicsburg; Clayton Boberg, Sidney; Jaden Humphrey, Sidney; Lisa Sebastian, Bethel; Phillip Trzaska, Minster; and Amber Zimpfer, Anna.
“The hard work and achievement of each of these scholarship recipients should be commended,” said Nanci McMaken, Pioneer’s vice president and chief communications officer. “We are happy to be able to financially assist children of members as they continue their education.”
