GALLIPOLIS — Each year, the Gallia Academy High School Alumni Association chooses two students from the graduating class to receive one-time $1,000 scholarships.
Many goals are in place from the association and the primary one is that two graduates from each class since 1995 are to be chosen for this award.
The scholarship committee meets after each school year ends and reviews all the applications submitted by seniors. Many requirements for each scholarship are reviewed and winners are determined by a majority vote.
This year, the winners are Drew Vansickle and Hollie Jo Bostic.
Vansickle is the son of Dale and Danella Newberry. Bostic is the daughter of Joe and Cheryl Bostic. Vansickle plans to attend the Ohio State University ATI campus, while Bostic plans to attend the University of Rio Grande.
The scholarship committee is comprised of chairwoman Ina Belle Sibley, Claudia Miller, Roberta Roush, Phyllis Stewart and Linda Carroll.
