Anna Evans earns Bay Village Historical Society scholarship

Anna Evans has been selected to receive the Bay Village Historical Society’s scholarship for 2018.

Evans is the daughter of Karyn and Tim Evans, both teachers.

Evans was awarded the Academic Excellence Award all four years of her high-school career. She was nominated for Buckeye Girls State her junior year and attended the Summer Linguistics Institute for Youth Scholars at The Ohio State University prior to her senior year. (SLIYS promotes foreign language study, including Spanish, Korean, French, Turkish, Chinese and additional foreign language, in all aspects by cultivating a deeper appreciation of language similarities and differences.)

A member of the National Honor Society her junior and senior years, Evans also was involved in Youth Challenge Sports, YC Volunteer Committee, the soccer team, Youth Philanthropy Fellowship, student council and the yoga club.

Evans intends to pursue a bachelor's degree in speech and hearing science at The Ohio State University in the fall, followed by a master's degree in speech-language pathology.

"I am truly honored to have been awarded this generous scholarship,” Evans said. “This scholarship will help me immensely as I pursue a degree in speech pathology and will ultimately benefit the children with communication disorders that I hope to serve in the future. I am entirely enthralled by every aspect of language and the concept of communication and I am very much looking forward to engaging myself in these studies.”
