Students awarded scholarships at annual banquet

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Several students from the tri-county area received money for college through a local scholarship fund.

The DeBartolo Memorial Scholarship Foundation handed out $56,000 in assistance Thursday during the annual awards banquet at Mr. Anthony’s in Boardman.

Any student can apply for the scholarship. The criterion for deciding winners depends on academics, community involvement, and financial need.

“Many, many people can’t afford it, especially today, so that is why Denise (York) has kept on this tradition all these years,” said Julie Costas, Debartolo Memorial Scholarship Foundation Committee.

Every year, about eight students receive scholarships from the foundation.
