CECH incoming fall 2015 freshman, Amanda Sanders, was recently awarded the 2015 Charles L. Warren Memorial Heritage Scholarship.  This scholarship is awarded to Ohio Association College Admission Counseling (OACAC) member high school students who demonstrate a continued commitment to cultural and intellectual diversity, who plan on attending an Ohio college or university, and who have maintained a grade point average of 3.00 or better throughout their high school career. Sanders demonstrated diversity in countless ways during her four years at Oyler High School, primarily in serving as the Vice President of Civic Awareness in the Jobs for Cincinnati Graduates’ Career Association and as Editor in Chief of the student newspaper.

Her additional activities included being the music producer in her high school’s student-developed Glee Club, mentoring a fifth grade student during her senior year (who referred to Sanders as “the best mentor ever”), being elected Vice President of her sophomore year’s Student Council, while also enrolled in her school’s first AP course. And if these activities were not enough, Sanders also participated in multiple community events throughout her high school years. Sanders stated, “I feel that I developed a great deal of professional diversity. Our graduating class had maybe 50 students, and I did so much around the school that I stood out as a leader.” Sanders will be a Secondary Education student starting in the fall of 2015. She is incredibly passionate about English literature and enjoys helping people and teaching them new things. Her previous success and involvement speaks well for Sanders and promises to make her a successful student at CECH as a UC Bearcat.
