Five high school students win Hiram College Terrier Scholarships


Hiram – Hiram College selected five incoming students as recipients of one-time $1,000 Terrier Scholarships. Scholarship winners Katie Whisler of Southington, Ohio, Maxwell Hendrix of Delaware, Ohio, Charlie Lichtenwalter of Erie, Pa., Kelsey Morgan of Jeannette, Pa., and Abby Howard of Broadview Heights, Ohio will enter Hiram College as students this fall.

Scholarship applicants were challenged to submit a creatively shot photograph or 15-second video that pays tribute to the Terrier, Hiram College’s mascot. Entry subjects included dogs sporting Hiram College T-shirts, a pair of identical pups, and even a Hiram alumnus.

“We’re excited to reward these students for their exquisite and creative pictures, ” says Vice President of Enrollment Lindajean Heller Western, “It’s so encouraging to see prospective students embracing the Hiram community, and we’re proud to have them as part of the Terrier family.”

Scholarship recipients were selected by a scholarship review board of Hiram College media and photography specialists based on the creativity and originality of submissions.
