Altrusa International of Washington C.H. awarded one of two $500 scholarships to Erin Johnson, a Miami Trace High School graduate, at its July 7 business meeting. Altrusa awards scholarships each year for two female graduates of Fayette County’s public high schools.
Erin will be attending Ohio State University in the fall and will major in animal science. Erin shared with Altrusa members that her focus will be to train service animals. Erin is the daughter of Delin and Denise Johnson of Washington Court House.
Altrusans raise funds for scholarships through projects such as the upcoming sixth-annual Loving Spoonsful tasting luncheon, scheduled for Oct. 8 at the Commission on Aging. Each year’s event grows resulting in additional resources being contributed to our local community organizations and projects.
Altrusa is an international non-profit organization that strives to make our local communities better through leadership, partnership and service. Altrusa of Washington Court House has been serving Fayette County for 41 years.
