Rotary club off ering scholarship to non- traditional students Lumber Company COSHOCTON – When Dorothy Skowrunski was working at COTC she was approached with the possibility of creat- ing a new scholarship. “At that time I saw a need to help nontraditional stu- dents,” she said. “Th ere were a lot of people with families who wanted to start college.” Th is observation led to the creation of the Coshocton Rotary Club Scholarship for non-traditional students. For several years now the club has been awarding two to three one year $2,000 scholarships to students. “Th ey can use it for tuition or books,” said Skowrunski, who is a member of Rotary and serves on the scholarship committee. Immediate family members of Rotarians and past recipients are not eligible for these onetime awards. To be eligible for this scholarship, an applicant must: • Live or work in Coshocton County • Be pursuing post-secondary education or training for a specifi c trade • Be 21 years old or older, or be a part-time student • Attach an essay, 500 words or less • Attach an unoffi cial transcript Applications can be found under the project section of the Rotary club’s website at www.coshoctonrotary.org. Applications must be postmarked or emailed by Monday, Oct. 29. “What we look for most (on the applications) is fi nancial need,” Skowrunski said. “We look for things like the mom of three who is single and going to school or someone who is taking care of a parent. When we award the schol- arships in December we’ve had recipients share before that without these scholarships they wouldn’t be able to go to school.” Th e scholarship committee of Skowrunski, Kathy Th ompson, Brian Dunlap and Tim Ross, review the applications. Completed applications with attachments (essay and transcript) can be mailed to: Coshocton Rotary Club, P.O. Box 675, Coshocton, OH 43812 or e-mail them to coshro- taryscholarship@yahoo.com. “Th is is a wonderful opportunity for us to help people further their education,” Th ompson said. “We encourage everybody to apply.” WE HAVE YOU COVERED! • LIMESTONE • CRUSHED GRAVEL • WASHED GRAVEL QUALITY PRODUCTS FALL SALE By Josie Sellers josie@coshoctoncountybeacon.com • SAND • FILL DIRT • TOP SOIL THE BEACON 19 www.coshoctonbeacontoday.com SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 October 8-13, 2018 12% OFF * ALL KITCHENS * Regularly Priced Items ALL FLOORING & TILE SELECT DOORS & WINDOWS KITCHEN CABINETS ALL COUNTERTOPS • PLASTIC CULVERT PIPE • SAND STONE RIP RAP Beat the Rush!
