On Friday, August 6, Class 101-Dayton hosted a scholarship reception to honor three graduates from the Class of 2021 with cash scholarships. Abby Hoehn and Jordan Babb, graduates of Springboro High School, each received a $500 local scholarship from Class 101-Dayton owners Karen and Tony DeRosa. Jenna Norman, graduate of Clinton-Massie High School, received the $1000 National 101 Scholar Award from Class 101 Founder and CEO Tom Pabin. Only four national 101 Scholar awards were given this year.
At both the local and national level, the 101 Scholar award celebrates students who excel in leadership in making a difference in their communities. Jenna Norman will attend Ohio Wesleyan University. Norman was an active volunteer in Clinton County, and she is the Ohio founder and leader of Youth Advocates for Change. She is already committed to the cheer squad at OWU, and she plans to pursue pre-law studies. Abby Hoehn will attend Butler University where she will major in strategic communications and participate in the honors program. Throughout high school, Abby dedicated service to the community by starting a Warmth from the Heart charity in Springboro and serving with the Warren County Teen Alliance Council. Jordan Babb will attend Lee University where he will major in business. Earlier this year, Jordan achieved the rank of Eagle Scout for his project designing and completing a makeover of the teacher/staff break room at Springboro High School.
“The Class 101 Scholarship program awards the difference-makers in our high schools,” said Karen Lane DeRosa, Owner of Class 101 in Springboro. “Jenna, Abby and Jordan all made clear differences in their schools and communities–in very different ways. Their stories are great examples of how one person can impact a community.”
The Class 101 Scholarship competition began in 2018 as a national contest. This year, the applications submitted from the local Miami Valley area were also reviewed by an independent panel of judges for the local scholarship.
Class 101 offers personalized college planning services. With the Class of 2021, Class 101 Dayton’s students achieved 92.4 percent acceptance rate and earned more than $13.9 million in merit scholarship offers. All Class 101 students received merit scholarships from their institutions, and nearly half of Class 101’s graduates received at least one outside scholarship from a local, regional, state, or national organization, business, or nonprofit.
Class 101 students work individually with college planners to define their interests, build a large list of schools, and take the steps necessary to achieve their college goals in the most cost-effective manner possible. Class 101-Dayton OH South currently works with students in grades nine through 12 from high schools throughout the Miami Valley.
