The Light Foundation Grants Scholarships to Darke County Seniors
August 19, 2021

Since 2008, the Light Foundation has given more than $65,000 in scholarships to students residing in Massachusetts and Darke County, Ohio!

The two recent graduates chosen are each receiving a $1,000 scholarship to help them further their education. And the winners this year have big plans:

Lauren Menke graduated from Versailles High School and is going to major in Nutrition and Pre-Med at Case Western Reserve University to eventually become a cardiologist.

Reece Stammen graduated from Ansonia High School and is going to major in Information Systems at Bowling Green State University.

It was an honor to meet these young people who know what they want and are taking every effort to go after it. With the rising costs of education these days, we are pleased to give back to these students. It would not be possible for us to do so without the help of our community.

Our Foundation received 40 applications. A committee reviewed the applications and considered the many different aspects of each student’s high school achievements. Some of the areas that were considered were academic achievement, community service, job responsibility, and the content of their answers on the application. Eligible students must fill out the scholarship application, which is posted at the beginning of the year and due by April 1.
