Miamisburg High School senior Kaylee Elkins was awarded the Franklin B. Walter Scholarship. The award was presented from the Montgomery County Educational Service Center Wednesday, April 12th at a luncheon at UD River Campus. The stipend is to be used to defray cost for books, fees and other college related expenses for the 2017-2018 school year.
Dr. Franklin B. Walter was the superintendent of Ohio schools and he stressed the importance of scholarship, integrity and involvement. School officials were asked to recommend students who were honest; respectful of others; involved in school/church/community/work activities; and displayed a strong work ethic toward his/her studies. Kaylee qualified in all categories! Upon learning that she had been chosen, Kaylee was asked to choose a "teacher of influence", who would also be honored. Kaylee chose Miamisburg Middle School teacher Jeanette McNally. Congratulations Kaylee! (Pictured below are Superintendent Dr. David Vail, Kaylee and Jeanette McNally)
