United Way of Franklin County Awards a Total of $4,000 to Service-Minded Students

The United Way of Franklin County is pleased to announce two recipients of the 2021 Live United
Scholarship. The two recipients were awarded a total of $4,000 for tuition costs and fees.

Ashley Meyers, recent 2021 FCHS graduate, is the daughter of Shannon and David Meyers. She
will be attending Stanford University and studying International Relations.

Ava Ralston, recent 2021 BHS graduate, is the daughter of Joe and Jean Ralston. She will be
attending the Purdue University this fall. She will be studying Food Science.

The Live United scholarship is designed to recognize individuals that have demonstrated a
commitment to serving Franklin County by making a positive impact in our community through
community service. Current high school seniors or GED graduates, along with current post-
secondary students of any age are eligible. The student must be a resident of Franklin County.

Awards are based on the applicant’s demonstrated commitment to community service and the
extent to which the applicant has impacted his or her own community through leadership or
service. This is not a need or academic achievement-based scholarship. The Scholarship Selection
Committee consists of a diversified group of community members and United Way of Franklin
County representatives.

The United Way of Franklin County seeks to positively impact the lives of those in our community
by assessing needs, uniting partner organizations, agencies and volunteers and devoting financial
resources and efforts to the most critical needs. For more information, please visit our website at
