Owens Community College Board of Trustees Awards 2005 Academic Excellence Scholarships

Area high school seniors recently were honored by Owens Community College's Board of Trustees for their outstanding achievements, receiving thousands of dollars in new scholarships through the Trustees' Academic Excellence Scholarship Program.

"Owens Community College is pleased to reward these incoming students for their superior academic efforts and exemplary contributions within their high schools and communities," said Jack Sculfort, Owens Chair of the Board of Trustees.
