Bellefontaine Kiwanis Club Scholarship recipients Erin Levine and Allison Knief were the featured speakers at the club’s Thursday meeting.
A recent Bellefontaine High School graduate, Ms. Levine will attend Wright State University in the fall to major in nursing. She stated that she wanted a career based on helping others and feels nursing is the perfect choice for her.
Her goal is to become a registered nurse and then continue her education in pursuit of becoming a nurse practitioner and possibly working as a traveling nurse.
Ms. Knief, a recent Indian Lake High School graduate, will attend Wilmington College in the fall to study animal science with a minor in business. She would like to pursue a career related to livestock business.
Growing up on a farm, Ms. Knief said she knew she wanted to work in the agriculture field. In the future, she wants to assist farmers with the nutrition needs of their livestock.
Both speakers shared that they participated in a variety of activities during their high school years. They also expressed appreciation to the Kiwanis Club for their financial support.
Upcoming events include a Miss DeMeanor concert Saturday, Aug. 23 at the Holland Theatre, with all proceeds benefiting the Kiwanis International’s Project Eliminate. The global effort works to fight the deadly disease of maternal neonatal tetanus.
The Kiwanians meet at noon weekly on Thursdays at Café 212. Visitors are welcome.
