A highlight of the May 20 meeting of Youngstown Lions Club was the presentation of the Rita Merz Memorial Scholarship to Youngstown State University, given in memory of Rita Merz, who had been a member of the Lions Club. The recipient is chosen by members of her family. Presenting the award to Stephanie Baker, left, a graduate of Leetonia High School, are Paul Merz and Jeannie Antol-Watson. The Lions are setting up an endowment so a similar scholarship can be awarded annually.
