Two earn Bay Village Historical Society scholarships

Rachel Zvara

Bay High seniors Rachel Zvara and Jocelyn Joseph have been selected to receive $1,000 scholarships from the Bay Village Historical Society.

Rachel has lived in Bay Village her whole life. She is the daughter of Jennifer, and granddaughter of Janet Zvara, former Bay Village citizen of the year and longtime curator of the Rose Hill Museum.

Jocelyn has lived in Bay Village for 18 years and is the daughter of Jeanne; she also lives with, and cares for, her grandmother.

Rachel will be attending Cleveland State University; she is undecided about a major. “I do enjoy creative writing, and have an interest in some type of religious studies, philosophy or leadership opportunities,” she said.

Jocelyn will be enrolled in both the honors and pre-med programs at Baldwin Wallace University, with a major in psychology and a minor in either dance or family relations.

Both are members of the National Honor Society.

“I have been a member of the Bay Village Historical Society for as long as I can remember,” Rachel said. “My grandmother has been the director of Rose Hill for almost my entire life. She has had a strong influence on my volunteer work, and has opened the door for my passion in history and preserving historical memories.”

“I am so honored to have been granted this generous scholarship from the Bay Village Historical Society,” Jocelyn said. “Not many cities have such a long and rich history as Bay Village and I am honored to have grown up here and continue to learn and grow from that. I would like to thank each and every person that has made this opportunity possible.”
