Nine Padua Seniors Receive Ohio Governor’s Merit Scholarship

January 26th, 2024 | News

Nine Padua seniors were recently awarded the Governor’s Merit Scholarship. Each student will receive $5,000 renewable scholarships for the next four years, because they are in the top 5% of Ohio’s Class of 2024.

Congratulations to the following Bruins:

  • Sofia Bowman ’24
  • Miranda Dawson ’24
  • Ruth Harley ’24
  • Pranjal Kashyap ’24
  • Cassidy Milner ’24
  • Andrew Novotny ’24
  • George Ochocki ’24
  • Karen Sawires ’24
  • Joseph Zver ’24

Funds can be applied to tuition and fees, as well as other educational expenses such as books, equipment, and room and board. Students may use the scholarship at any public or private, nonprofit college or university in Ohio.

Gov. Mike DeWine, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Higher Education, created this award in an effort to increase the number of high-achieving high school graduates who remain in Ohio for college.

“With so many world-class higher education institutions in Ohio, we want to encourage all students to stay in-state as they continue their education and transition into careers,” said DeWine. “Ohio is truly the heart of opportunity, and we want all Ohioans to find the path that is right for them, right here at home.”

Padua is proud of these individuals for their impressive scholastic achievements.
