SOCIETY DIGEST || Seniors will be honored at breakfast
Local students will be honored at a breakfast at 9 a.m. Friday at A La Cart Catering. The students are recipients of the J.L. Francis Scholarship, First Place Community Fund.
Twenty-two students, one from each public high school in Mahoning County, as well as Choffin Career Center, Ursuline and Cardinal Mooney, will receive $1,000 college scholarships.
The recipients have met the grade-point-average requirements and have demonstrated a commitment to their schools and communities through volunteer service and involvement during their high school years.
The J.L. Francis Scholarship was established in honor of Jeffery L. Francis, former chief operating officer of First Place Bank and executive vice president and CEO of First Place Financial Corp., who lost the battle with ALS in 2005. His hard work and dedication inspired the creation of the scholarship.
