Owens Community College student Kaleb Hartman of Bryan has been chosen by the Walters Family to receive a $500 Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters Scholarship for the upcoming 2013-14 academic year.
Established in 2011, the endowed scholarship honors the legacy of Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters, all of Millbury, and their commitment to lifelong learning.
The scholarship is given annually to an Owens student at the Walters Family 5K Run with aspirations of careers in early childhood education, information systems, computer programming and computer systems.
"On behalf of the Walters' family, extended family, friends, local community, Pastor Robert Noble of Calvary Lutheran Church and the Walters' Family 5K Committee, it is truly an honor to present the Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters Scholarship to Kaleb Hartman," said Robin Arquette, who is the sister of Ryan Walters.
"It gives us great joy and pride to be able to assist in helping students in the community achieve their educational goals."
Hartman intends on pursuing his associate's degree in information systems this fall at Owens and aspires to work in the information technology field.
The 2013 Bryan High School graduate is a member of the National Honor Society and achieved a 3.6 GPA.
In June 2010, Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters lost their lives as a result of a tornado and damaging storms that devastated the Northwest Ohio region.
The Walters Family 5K Run was established to honor the seven victims of the June 5, 2010 tornado. Proceeds from the race benefit the Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters Endowed Scholarship Fund.
