$40,000 donated to Celina scholarship fund

By Doug Drexler
CELINA - Future high school seniors will benefit from a new scholarship fund donated in memory of a Celina couple.
The Celina school board during a meeting Thursday night accepted a $41,907 donation to create the Paul and Helen Jean Meyer Scholarship Fund. School treasurer Mick Davis said the couple's son, Jerry Andrew, recently donated the funds on behalf of his parents.
The scholarships will be awarded to Celina High School seniors carrying at least a 3.0 grade point average. The board is required to use $2,500 per year from the fund annually for five years, and as the district sees fit thereafter, Davis said.
Superintendent Jess Steiner said officials will need to set up a committee to develop criteria for the scholarships. The guidance department normally handles scholarship distribution, he added.
"Hopefully, Mr. Andrew can help us develop the protocol. We are very thankful to the Meyer family and want to make sure that we are accurately following their wishes," Steiner said.
The board also accepted donations of $3,850 and $3,500 from the Mercer County Civic Foundation to fund class trips and approved a $6,500 reimbursement to Davis for moving expenses, per his contract.
All board meetings this year will be in the Education Complex meeting room unless a large number of visitors are expected, the board announced.
