Olentangy Orange Student Receives Local Scholarship to OSU
The OSU Alumni Club of Delaware County is pleased to announce that their second annual scholarship has been awarded. The recipient is Mohammed Dweik. Dweik is a 2015 graduate of Olentangy Orange High School and resides in Lewis Center. At Olentangy Orange, he was on the varsity ice hockey team and received the best goal tender award as well as playing in the marching band.
Dweik is currently attending The Ohio State University Marion campus studying Mechanical Engineering. “Mohammad is our second scholarship recipient” says Joyce Perry, scholarship chair. “We are delighted that the club can fulfill our goal of helping students from Delaware County with scholarships”. Dweik is oldest of four children in his family and recognizes the financial challenges of getting a college education so he also holds a part-time job at the Chiller ice rink. He said “I am so grateful to the Delaware Alumni Club for this scholarship. It will help me and my family to pay my tuition this semester.”
A presentation of the scholarship award and reception was held in early December so the monies would be available for use this Spring semester.
