The first scholarship winner is Robert Comstock of Piqua. Robert plans to attend University of Northwestern Ohio this fall majoring in Sports Marketing/Management or Digital Multimedia. He would like to study abroad while at UNOH as his mission trips to Nicaragua have shown him the importance of helping those less fortunate.
