JACKSON — The Ohio High School Athletic Association annually provides scholarships for outstanding student athletes from its member schools.

Each member high school may submit one senior male and one senior female candidate for scholarship consideration. Each member high school may also submit one senior female minority and one senior male minority candidate.

The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who have excelled in the classroom as well as high school sports. At the state level, the OHSAA provides 48 scholarships across the six OHSAA athletic districts.

Thirty-six students receive $1,000 awards – including one student from each of the six OHSAA athletic districts that will receive an Ethnic Minority Scholarship – the remaining scholarships are awarded proportionately according to the number of schools in each athletic district.

In addition to the four scholarships awarded by the Ohio High School Athletic Association the Southeast District Athletic Board (SEDAB) is proud to award an additional 21 scholarships to the deserving scholar-athletes in Southeast Ohio.

In conjunction with the OHSAA the SEDAB recently announced the 2018 Scholar-Athlete Scholarship awards at their annual Scholar-Athlete Banquet on June 21, in Jackson, Ohio.

The SEDAB is pleased to announce Jessica Cook of Eastern High School has been awarded the SEDAB Scholarship in the amount of $500.
