The Youngstown State University Association of Classified Employees has awarded a $400 scholarship to Nicole Pavlansky of Canfield, Ohio, who is majoring in Accounting at YSU.
Pavlansky, nominated by YSU ACE members Mary Dillingham and Mary Hake of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Science, works in the Office of Philosophy and Religious Studies.
An award dinner was held at Collections Cafe at the Butler Institute of American Art. Pavlansky was accompanied by her parents and surrounded by numerous members of the YSU-ACE executive committee, the selection committee, the social committee and those who recommended her.
Applicants must have completed at least 30 semester hours at YSU and have documented financial need. They must submit an essay discussing the value of his/her employment at YSU, their community service, and two recommendation letters from YSU-ACE members.
“The students are our number one priority,” said Connie Frisby, administrative assistant in the Office of Computer Science & Information and YSU-ACE president. “Many past and present YSU-ACE employees have made and continue to make contributions into this scholarship through the YSU Foundation to be able to help those hard working students a bit more. It was an honor to share this event with Nicole.”
