Chamber awards scholarship


POMEROY — The Meigs County Chamber of Commerce has awarded its housing scholarship to Matthew Frank.

Tom Sutton of Rio Grande Community College and Chamber Scholarship Chairperson stated, “We are excited to have this opportunity to help a local graduate. We are not grateful only to the college, but also to the community members who make it possible for the Chamber to award this.”

This is the second year that the Chamber has awarded the scholarship.

The scholarship is made possible by community members. Rio Grande Community College donated the scholarship to the Meigs Chamber for its Spring Dinner, then members of the community contribute to buy it so it can be awarded.

The scholarship is awarded based on community service.

Frank said, “Community service helps your community and yourself. It makes the community better while you learn valuable lessons.”

Frank is an Eastern graduate. He plans to attend the University of Rio Grande for a degree in Chemistry. He hopes to become a pharmacist.
