On Thursday, April 11, 2019 the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) recognized 84 of Ohio's “Best and Brightest” top senior from each county across the state during the 30th Annual Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Awards Program. The North Point Educational Service Center award recipients honored were David Dotson from Vermilion High School representing Erie County, Anna Little from Norwalk High School representing Huron County, Joey Dominique from Genoa High School representing Ottawa County and Morgan Johnson from Lakota High School representing Sandusky County.
The recognition was established in 1989 by Ohio’s educational service centers as a way to celebrate outstanding scholarship and applaud the achievements of one senior from each county in the state. Named after a former state superintendent, the program is the only event which brings together the top graduating seniors from across Ohio to recognize their achievements.
David Dotson, the son of David and Jessica Dotson, plans on attending the College of Wooster to study Neuroscience/Psychology. Anna Little, the daughter of Jeff & Amy Little, will attend the United States Air Force Academy to major in Computer Engineering. Joey Dominique, the son of Jeff & Karen Dominique, will attend the University of Toledo to major in Chemical Engineering. Morgan Johnson, daughter of Steven & Kimberly Johnson, will attend The Ohio State University and major in Art/Tech and Public Health. These four recipients received a plaque acknowledging their accomplishments and a Franklin B. Walter Scholar medallion. In addition, each of them received a $500 book scholarship from North Point Educational Service Center.
Approximately 390 students, parents and educators attended the event. Among the attendees were the Honorable Mike DeWine, Governor of Ohio and the Honorable Andrew Brenner, Ohio State Senator, District 19.
