Forty-two runners turned out for the second annual 7K Scholarship Run last Saturday and the benefit race raised some $1,300 that will be used to provide scholarship monies to eight graduating SSHS seniors.
To be eligible for scholarships, the seniors had to run in the race though how they finished was not a consideration. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of essays the seniors write on how the physical, mental, and spiritual charcteristics will and do fit into their life. They must, as well, describe how they will spend the money.
Seniors who ran the race and who will receive scholarship amounts yet to be determined by the essays were Marlee Brown, Deborah Cahoon, Bobby Clark, Lane Dellwo, Kelly Duntz, Noah Madinger, Katie Matthew, and Shannon O'Brien.
