NEW LEXINGTON — Buckeye Lake for Tomorrow (BLT), our local watershed group, recognized three local high school graduates with the annual Merv Bartholow Scholarship Award of $1,000 each.
The scholarship is a memorial to Merv Bartholow, a BLT founder and civic and environmental activist. Bartholow worked diligently to improve water quality in the Buckeye Lake watershed and inspired many others to join the cause.
Katelyn Carnes, Andrew Warner, and Anthony Toskin maintained outstanding overall records during their high school years, responded effectively in an essay about issues of good water quality in the Buckeye Lake watershed, and plan to study a STEM field in college.
BLT congratulates this year’s winners with good wishes for their college studies:
Katelyn Carnes, Sheridan High School, plans to study Biochemistry at West Virginia University. She is the daughter of Carolyn and Scott Carnes.
Andrew Warner, Millersport High School, plans to study Freshwater/Aquatic Biology at Bowling Green University. He is the son of Roger Warner and Beth Warner.
Anthony Toskin, Lakewood High School, plans to study Chemical Engineering at Walsh University. He is the son of Lori and Mark Toskin.
