Sunday, May 13th we were privileged to present two scholarships to graduating seniors. Miss Kayla Reyle was presented the 14th Lois E. Wilson scholarship and Mr. Will Jones received the 8th annual Miss Viola Reichart scholarship.
Mrs. Lois E. Wilson was the Delaware Township Librarian for sixteen years retiring in Oct. of 1981. She and her husband had one daughter born to the marriage and Miss Wilson still lives here in town after retiring from TWA. Mrs. Wilson had a sister who taught in our school district at one time as well, Mrs. Walter Cole. Lois enjoyed the young people that came into the library and we hope that she would have felt honored to know that we were helping the young people of the community to further their education even in a small way.
Miss Viola Reichart was a beloved teacher here in our district. She served on our library board for many years and when she passed away we approached her family about a scholarship in her name and they were more then happy to help us with that project. We couldn’t think of a better way to honor her then to have a scholarship in her name.
If any of you would like to donate money to our scholarship fund so we can continue this for as long as possible we would appreciate the donation.
