OTTOVILLE — The Ottoville Lions Club continued their support of community youth by presenting Ottoville High School student Quinley Schlagbaum with a scholarship of $1000 for continued education. The club presented Miss Schlagbaum with the scholarship at Ottoville High School Honors night. Quinley is the daughter of David and Shannon Schlagbaum and will be pursuing a career as a Medical Doctor specializing in Radiology at Ohio University.

According to Joe Moreno, President, “Quinley has demonstrated many great qualities that make her a deserving recipient of this scholarship. Helping young people continue their education is one of the challenges our community faces, and it’s a need our club continues to address. We are also extraordinarily grateful for the support and contributions we continue to receive from members of the community that allow us to make a difference.”

In addition to the scholarship, the club conducts a variety of projects and events, including Park Concessions, 250 Club drawing, glasses and scrap metal recycle programs, Eddie Eyeglasses, and an annual Reverse Draw night in November, as well as supporting other International, national, state and county charitable programs.

The Ottoville Lions Club has 48 members and meets on the first Tuesday every Month at 8 p.m. at the Ottoville Municipal Bldg., 150 Park Drive. Lions clubs are groups of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
