On Tuesday, May 12, 2020 the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) virtually recognized 84 of Ohio’s “Best and Brightest” top senior from each county across the state. The North Point Educational Service Center award recipients honored were Anthony Blue from Perkins High School representing Erie County, Mitchell Sommers from Norwalk High School representing Huron County, John Holzaepfel from Danbury High School representing Ottawa County, and Martin Perkins from Woodmore High School representing Sandusky County.
The recognition was established in 1989 by Ohio’s educational service centers as a way to celebrate outstanding scholarship and applaud the achievements of one senior from each county in the state. Named after a former state superintendent, the program is the only event which brings together the top graduating seniors from across Ohio to recognize their achievements.
Anthony Blue, the son of Bob and Sarah Blue, plans on attending the University of Cincinnati to major Mechanical Engineering. Mitchell Sommers, the son of Norm and Tracey Sommers, will attend The Ohio State University to major in Exercise Science. John Holzaepfel, the son of Brian and Angela Holzaepfel, will attend The Ohio State University to major in Public Management, Leadership, and Policy. Martin Perkins, the son of Ken and Lisa Perkins, will attend The Ohio State University and major in Accounting. These four recipients will receive a plaque acknowledging their accomplishments. In addition, each of them will receive a $500 book scholarship from North Point Educational Service Center.
Lt. Governor Jon Husted delivered this year’s keynote address. If you would like to watch the virtual event, please go to the OESCA YouTube Channel.
