Secretary’s Report: M/S/P (Robert/Mike)
President’s Report: Steve reported that he called the Foundation and they have the criteria set for each scholarship and the scholarships are labeled S1 and S2. Mark suggested that we ask the Foundation to change it so when people apply they know they are applying for either the Academic or the Trade scholarship. If potential applicants have questions about the criteria for each scholarship they can call the Licking County Foundation.
There was also discussion about what to do with all of the old trophies that have amassed over the years. Barb suggested we auction the trophies and donate the money raised to the scholarship fund.
