“We had several deserving students who applied for the scholarships so it wasn’t an easy decision,” said Dianne Braudrick of the scholarship committee.
“Christine was always encouraging young people to focus on their education and follow their dreams and it was an honor to help select this year’s scholarship recipients.”
Davis Denny of Thorndale, Grant Westbrook of Milano and Tyler Vrazel of Buckholts each received a $2,000 scholarship.
