The Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center Governing Board and members of Bryce Watt’s family presented Monday, October 11, the Bryce Watt Memorial Scholarship. Parker Schehl was the recipient of the $1,500 scholarship.
Parker Schehl is a 2021 Tri-Valley High School graduate and attends Ohio University-Zanesville studying nursing. He was chosen to receive the scholarship based upon his school and community volunteer activities and a required essay explaining the importance of service. Parker is the son of Amy Luby and Matthew Schehl.
The scholarship was established by the Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center (MVESC) Governing Board in cooperation with Bryce Watt’s family with funds provided by the Board and current and past administrators. Mr. Watt was a MVESC board member for 26 years, and his life exemplified service to others. He passed away August 21, 2020.
The scholarship was available to a child or grandchild of a MVESC staff member who is currently enrolled in an Ohio college of university. A committee reviewed each student’s application and essay to determine the scholarship recipient.
