The fourth 2012 Business Scholarship recipient from the Greenville Eagles through the Senior Scribes Scholarship Fund was awarded recently to Stephanie Mayo, a senior from Ansonia High School.

She will be attending Ball State University in its Exercise Science and Applied Science Track programs.

Eagles recipients must be a child or grandchild of a Greenville Eagles member and write an essay on what he or she intends to do upon graduation.

Presenting the scholarship check to Mayo was Eagles 2177 Worthy President Greg Peck, with Stephanie’s mother and Eagles Officers present.

This was the first year The Eagles has awarded four new scholarships. In addition, the Eagles awarded two second year scholarships last December.

The Senior Scribes Scholarship Fund, through its fundraising efforts, has provided nearly $24,000 in scholarships to 20 students since 2009.
