Winkler, Troy recipient selected

Two college-bound Greenville High School seniors will find meeting college costs a little easier come this fall.

Sierra Chambers and Christie Morgan have been selected as the 2005 recipients of the Winkler-Troy Scholarship. Each will receive a $2,000 scholarship to LBW Community College (LBWCC).

The scholarship is awarded annually by a committee consisting of Dr. Fred Winkler of Andalusia, a retired LBWCC instructor; GHS guidance counselor Pat MacNaughton and retired GHS instructor Roberta Gamble.

Recipients must be Greenville High School female graduates who plan to attend LBWCC, either at the Greenville or Andalusia branch. The $2,000 in scholarship monies are put towards the student’s tuition and book costs.

&uot;The award may be renewed for a second year if the students have made progress and show a good scholarly ethic. We don’t base it strictly on grades,&uot; said Winkler, who is the administrator of the scholarship.

This is the 15th year the award has been given. The first award went to Tracy Scott in 1991.

&uot;The scholarship was begun in honor of August and Ida Winkler by their daughter Elsie Troy,&uot; said Winkler.

&uot;The goal of the award is to annually encourage and enable a Greenville High School graduating woman to continue her education. We hope through offering this scholarship the recipient will develop self pride and pride in Butler County.&uot;
