SIDNEY — John Meyer, a senior at Lehman Catholic High School, has been selected to receive a Honda-OSU Math Medal as the top math student at his school. In partnership with The Ohio State University College of Engineering, Honda began offering this award in 2005 to high school seniors in west central Ohio, spanning 15 counties of the Honda hiring area. Schools nominate their top math students for this honor and selection is based on academic performance in mathematics through the end of the junior year.
The Honda-OSU Partnership (HPP) is an academic-industry partnership (similar to a foundation) that supports programs in education, research and public service that positively impact the transportation industry.
In addition to a pewter Math Medal and certificate, Meyer will receive a $100 gift card and the opportunity to apply for a $3000 scholarship at the Ohio State University College of Engineering. The HPP Scholarship is renewable for four years and can be combined with other scholarships at OSU. Up to 20 scholarships are awarded each year to incoming freshmen at OSU.
Meyer is considering Ohio State as one of his college choices, along with Wright State and the University of Toledo. He plans to major in Computer Engineering. At Lehman, Meyer has been active in marching and concert band, musicals, and choir for school Masses. The son of James and Mary Meyer of Troy, he is a member of the National Honor Society and a Mass server at St. Patrick Church.
Meyer and other Class of 2016 Math Medal winners were honored at a special breakfast ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 5, at Honda of American Manufacturing in Marysville.
