To the Editor:
Getting higher education was important to us as children. At the time, our family’s sole income came from the farm and we relied heavily on financial aid to make our education hopes a reality.

All four of us benefitted greatly from the Bell-Herron Scholarship funds to help us through our years of college.

Three of us graduated from The Ohio State University with degrees in agriculture and the youngest graduated from Kent State University with a degree in education. We are all doing well in our chosen careers. Without the help of scholarships, we would not have been able to attend college.

We urge the community to continue to support the Bell-Herron Scholarship fund as they strive to collect $50,000 in their 50th year of existence. Help other families send their children to college!
