The United Way of Franklin County is pleased to announce two recipients of the 2019 Live United Scholarship.  The two recipients were awarded a total of $5,000 for tuition costs and fees.

Jenna Watterson, recent 2019 FCHS graduate, is the daughter of Melanie Watterson and the late Brian Watterson.  She will be attending Miami University in Oxford, OH. She will be studying media and culture.


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 www.uwfcin.org or like us on Facebook.
