DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – 21 high school seniors from each school district in Montgomery County received the Franklin B. Walters Scholarship after they were nominated by their superintendents and principals.
Each student is nominated based on citizenship, exemplary schoolwork and attendance, and test scores.
They will each receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Montgomery County Educational Service Center.
“We’re very proud of our students and for the teachers who’ve helped them be successful and we know their parents and families are proud of them, too,” says Frank DePalma with the Montgomery County Educational Service Center.
The scholarship program is named after Franklin B. Walter, who served as State Superintendent from 1977 until 1991.
