The Kiwanis Club of Mansfield is pleased to announce the recipient of the Service Leadership Program Scholarship for 2018.
This year’s scholarship winner is Ethan Zimmerman, Class of 2018 at Ontario High School.
The Service Leadership Program Scholarship is awarded to one area senior Key Club member who has volunteered several hours towards bettering the community and plans on upholding the Kiwanis motto of “serving the children of the world” in the future. The recipient receives a one-time gift of $600 to utilize for continuing education at their college or trade school of choice.
Throughout his senior year, Zimmerman has participated in several Key Club sponsored activities such as volunteering at the Pumpkin Glow at the Kingwood Center, the annual Kiwanis Club of Mansfield’s Pancake Breakfast, at the Richland County Animal Shelter and Habitat for Humanity Restore; alongside several hours at his high school for large swim meets and athletic competitions.
“Ethan poses several leadership qualities that made his application stand-out to the scholarship committee. His dedication to community service, leadership within his Key Club, and ambition to assist children in his future career as a criminal defense attorney embodies the ideals of the scholarship” states SLP Committee Chair, Jessica Dulle.
Zimmerman currently serves as the Key Club Secretary with Ontario High School. He plans on attending Ohio Northern University this fall to pursue a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, with the intent of going on to law school to become a criminal defense attorney.
