RCF Scholarship Committee Chairman Michael Chambers announced during a recent Board of Trustees meeting that 417 scholarships were awarded to 140 freshmen, 100 sophomores, 78 juniors and 99 seniors attending accredited two-year or four-year colleges or universities. Of those receiving awards, 372 students are enrolled in an Ohio school and 45 students will attend an out-of-state school.
