The committee for the Christopher M. Potts Memorial Scholarship has chosen Hannah Baker from Continental High School and Carrie Gerding from Kalida High School as the 2013 recipients of this $2000 scholarship.
The Christopher M. Potts Memorial Scholarship was established out of love and respect for Chris Potts, a 1997 Continental High School graduate who died in an automobile accident on June 28, 1997. Chris inspired and brought forth the best in everyone he knew. His friends and family hope to continue the touching of lives by this fine young man through this scholarship which is awarded annually to one CHS and one KHS senior who demonstrate high moral character, strong academic commitment, and leadership skills that Chris exemplified.
Hannah, a senior at CHS, is the daughter of Chris and Tammy Baker, and will be attending the University of Cincinnnati majoring in Biomedical Sciences. She plans to go on to be a Pediatric Oncologist. Carrie is the daughter of Mark and Mary Gerding and is a senior at KHS. She will be attending The Ohio State University to pursue a degree in Computer Science Engineering.
