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 18, 2013, in the Visitor and Student Services Center on the campus of The Ohio State University at Lima. The awards to incoming freshman were made possible by a generous gift by Arthur and Marian Rudd.

Full-tuition winners include: Isaac Altenburger, Delphos St. Johns High School; Nicole Brown, Wapakoneta High School; and Kiaya Shellenberg, Houston High School. Half-tuition winners are Faith Luginbill, Columbus Grove High School; Meagan Straley, Leipsic High School; and Angela Massara, Upper Sandusky 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 $7,140 per year and $28,560 over the life of the scholarship. The incoming class for Autumn 2013 is the ninth group to be eligible for the awards.
