The Youngstown State University Association of Classified Employees has awarded $800 in scholarships to three YSU Students – $400 to Molly Auchter of Hubbard, majoring in Computer Forensics; $200 to Celeste Cavanaugh of Struthers, majoring in Nursing; and $200 to Kyle Marshall of Canfield, majoring in Nursing.

An awards dinner was held earlier this summer in the Butler Institute of American Art.

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.

“Students are our number one priority,” said Connie Frisby, administrative assistant in the Office of Computer Science and Information Systems and YSU-ACE president.

“Many past and present YSU-ACE employees have made and continue to make contributions to 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 the recipients and their families.”

For more information on the scholarship, contact Anthony Spano at 330-941-2669 or avspano@ysu.edu. Donations to the fund should be sent to the ACE Scholarship Fund at the YSU Foundation. The scholarship was established in 2003 as an endowed scholarship invested through the YSU Foundation to provide financial assistance to YSU student employees.
