The Bay Men’s Club has awarded four $1,500 scholarships to four very deserving Bay High students: Victoria Hamilton, Pawel Kotowski, Shaley Stearns and Abriana Holzworth.

Scholarships are awarded based on need, character, scholastic achievement and leadership qualities. The four and their families were honored recently at the club’s annual pig roast at the Bay Lodge.

Hamilton, a two-year member of the National Honor Society and Key Club president, plans on studying art history at Case Western Reserve University.

Kotowski, who earned the Principal’s Best Award for academic excellence and who operates his own landscaping company, plans on studying accounting at Case Western Reserve University.

Stearns, a four-year member of the school’s Academic Challenge team and who is a nanny for a child with autism, will attend Kent State University where she will study nursing.

Holzworth, who was on the Honor Roll all four years of high school and who had perfect attendance since kindergarten, will attend the University of Toledo where she will study pharmacy.

“The accomplishments of these four recipients, both academically and in other fields, is quite impressive,” Scholarship Committee Chairperson John Stanton said. “We are happy to provide this seed money for our leaders of tomorrow.”
