Annual Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Awards Program
The Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award Program was established by the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) to promote and recognize outstanding academic achievement.
One senior from each Ohio county who is nominated by an ESC is
eligible to receive this honor each spring.
Shawnee High School senior Alora Patel has been named the 2023 Franklin B. Walter Scholar for Allen County. Molly represents "the best and brightest" of the Class of 2023. Alora plans to attend Case Western Reserve majoring in biological sciences.
The Allen County ESC and the Ohio Educational Service Center Association extend congratulations to Alora, her family, and Shawnee High School.
The award is designed to honor a top student in each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties, and is named after a former respected State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
It is a distinct honor to be selected and the selection criteria are rigorous.
Application materials can be obtained from school counselors in January.
