Dawson receives Wernz scholarship

Jordan Dawson received the Donna Mae Berry Wernz Foundation scholarship during the Eastern Local School District Awards Program held on May 20, at Eastern Local High School.

Dawson received the $3,000 award in recognition of her achievements, and to assist her in pursuit of further academic studies. She will attend Northern Kentucky University to pursue a teacher’s degree in mathematics at the secondary education level.

The foundation was established in gratitude for the education provided to Donna Wernz at Ashridge Elementary and Russellville High School, and to recognize annually an outstanding senior at Eastern Local High School for their accomplishments.
