Belmont Technical College Student Recipient of Rotary Scholarship
St. Clairsville, OH (October 13, 2011) - Belmont Technical College is pleased to
announce that student William “Cori” McMillan, from Belmont, Ohio has
been awarded the St. Clairsville Rotary Scholarship.
Cori is a second-year Building Preservation/Restoration (BPR) student at Belmont;
his anticipated graduation date is Spring 2012. After graduation he plans
to stay in the area and use the skills that he has acquired. Cori recently
worked on a series of summer BPR group projects which included: restoring a teacher’s
kit at the Great Western Schoolhouse; renovating the basement windows at the former
Thoburn United Methodist Church, now the Belmont County Senior Center in St. Clairsville,
Ohio; and restoring an historic four-seat outhouse in Deersville, Ohio.
“We are very appreciative of the St. Clairsville Noon Rotary for their commitment
to Belmont and our students,” said R.J. Konkoleski, Director of Development
and External Affairs. “This scholarship makes it possible for many Belmont
students to further their education and become active members in our local community.”
To be eligible for the $500 St. Clairsville Rotary Scholarship, a student must:
be a resident of the St. Clairsville/Richland Township school district; a high school
graduate and be enrolled full-time in a degree-seeking program at Belmont.
The $500 award is possible as a result of a $25,000 donation awarded to the College
by the St. Clairsville Rotary Club in 1995. To date, Belmont had awarded more
than $5,850 in scholarships through this endowment since the fund was created.
