Bay Alumni Foundation awards 3 scholarships
The Bay Alumni Foundation presented three scholarships at the 59th annual Kiwanis Academic Achievement program on May 19. Through the generous donations and support from our alumni, we have been able to recognize outstanding graduating seniors for many years. The committee received many wonderful applicants for our scholarships this year and it was difficult to choose. But the committee all agreed on the following students who were each awarded $1,000 scholarships:
BAF female recipient: Julianna Sanchez
Julianna was a well-rounded student and active member of her school community: her activities included Rockettes, student council, yearbook, and show choir. She plans to attend the University of Cincinnati and will study fashion merchandising.
BAF male recipient: Levi Wunder
Levi was involved in all of the bands at the high school, played lacrosse and soccer and participated in theater. He will attend Bowling Green State University as a psychology major.
Class of '66 recipient: Emma Spirollari
Emma was in the National Honor Society, was a class officer, part of Model UN, and played volleyball. She will attend Ohio State University as a biology major in a pre-med track.
Congratulations to all of these impressive young people! We are all cheering for them as they begin the next chapter of their lives. Go with confidence, be happy, and keep in touch!
I am the president of the Bay Alumni Foundation.
