Ohio State Lima names Rudd Scholars

Six future Buckeyes receive full and half-tuition scholarships

Six soon-to-be Buckeyes received a full- or half-tuition scholarship at a dinner and ceremony Wed., April 11, 2012, in the Visitor and Student Services Center. The awards to incoming freshman were made possible by a generous gift by Arthur and Marian Rudd.

This year’s full-tuition scholarship winners include: Benjamin Frey, Indian Lake High School; Kelly Richards, Wapakoneta High School; and Elizabeth Wynn, Columbus Grove High School. Half-tuition scholarships were awarded to: DeLannie Hicks, Delphos Jefferson High School; Nicholas Pratt, Shawnee High School; and Aaron Mumma, Lima Senior High School.

The Arthur and Marian Rudd Scholarship Fund provides three full and three half tuition scholarships each year to students for whom such an award will make a significant financial difference. The scholarships are renewable for four years. At current tuition levels, the full scholarship will be worth about $6,327 per year and $25,308 over the life of the scholarship. The incoming class for Autumn 2012 is the eighth group to be eligible for the awards.
