To celebrate the retirement of their beloved Pastor Kurt W. Borows, who passed away in 2020, the congregation at Resurrection Lutheran Church on the Catawba Peninsula established a scholarship fund to honor his 56 years in the ministry, and 42 years served with their church.
Pastor Borows and his wife, Linda, were instrumental in the establishment of the criteria for the scholarship, made available to all five Ottawa County high school districts. A committee of judges met in February to review scholarship applications, and awarded $1,500 scholarships to Port Clinton High School seniors Alaina Dackermann and Kierstin Sherer.
Alaina is the daughter of Paul and Jenifer Dackermann, and is planning to attend Ohio University, where she will major in Journalism and History Education.
Kierstin is the daughter of Rock and Amy Sherer. While she has not selected a college yet, she has been accepted at Ohio State, Kent State, Otterbein and John Carroll universities. Kierstin plans to study Biology, with the intention of entering the medical field, perhaps as a Physician’s Assistant.
The congregation at Resurrection Lutheran Church would like extend best wishes to each of these young ladies, as they begin their journey to rewarding and successful careers.
