Two recent Otto-Eldred High School (PA) graduates recently received awards from scholarship funds that benefit OEHS graduates managed by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation.

Darcie Schneider and Andrew Sheeler each received the Otto/Otto-Eldred Alumni Scholarship for $1,000.

The Otto-Eldred Alumni Scholarship is a scholarship given annually to Otto-Eldred High School graduating seniors who have maintained at least 2.75 GPA and received acceptance to, preferably, a two-year college or a four-year program.

Schneider will attend Gettysburg College in the fall to study health sciences. Sheeler plans to study mechanical engineering at Robert Morris University.

Sheeler also received the Albert A. Bennett Jr. Family Scholarship for $500.

Sue Bennett established the scholarship in memory of her husband to benefit a graduating Otto-Eldred senior pursuing a post-secondary degree at a two- or four-year institution. Recipients should demonstrate academic excellence, participation in extracurricular activities and strong educational/career goals. Mr. and Mrs. Bennett and their four children all graduated from Otto-Eldred.

Donations can be made to both of these funds at CRCF, 301 North Union St., Suite 203 or online at cattfoundation.org.
