The following Wetzel County, River High School and Tyler Consolidated student/athletes who are in grades 9-12 and have earned a 3.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale for the 2016-2017 school year and participated in at least one varsity sport received certificates which were presented to the athletic directors on Wednesday, Aug. 9, at their mandatory meeting at the WesBanco Arena.
The certificates were presented by Ohio University Eastern Dean, Dr. Paul Abraham, and athletic director E.J. Schodzinski. Of the 53 OVAC schools, 49 (92%) took advantage of this opportunity. Schools not responding were: Conotton Valley, East Richland Christian, Hundred, and St. John Central.
This year, 2364 student/athletes received this certificate, the largest number in eleven years.
Ohio University Eastern sponsors this program, which is now in its eleventh year. Students who choose to attend OUE receive a scholarship that pays of their tuition. This is renewable for their sophomore year as long as their grades are maintained.
