The Austintown Alumni Association recently awarded $500 scholarships to seven graduating seniors from Austintown Fitch High school, including Jacob Eynon, Brenna Gessler, Sarah Guerrier, Molly Kohler, John Phan, Alex Sofranko and Eryanne Taft.
The Austintown Alumni Association was established in October 1977 and reaches Fitch graduates across the country. Its goals are to raise money for scholarships awarded to graduating Fitch seniors, to provide mini-grants to Austintown teachers, and to provide a link for Austintown alumni.
The association is currently selling tickets for its annual raffle. First prize is $500, second prize is a basket of gift certificates from local merchants, and third prizes is dinner for two at Rachel’s Restaurant. Tickets can be purchased prior to the Austintown Hall of Fame Game on Friday, Sept. 23 in the Hall of Fame tent, or by calling Shirley Smith at 330-505-0349.
