OHS grads receive memorial CRCF scholarships

OLEAN, N.Y., August 3, 2021 – Nine Olean High School graduates recently received scholarship awards from funds established at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation in memory of former area residents.

Tanvi Patro received the Robert E. Hull VMD Memorial Scholarship for $1,800.

Established in memory of Robert Hull, an Olean native who went on to a long, successful career in veterinary medicine in Pittsburgh, PA, this scholarship is for students who demonstrate a financial need, academic success (minimum GPA 3.0 or better), and who intend to pursue a degree at a 2- or 4-year college in a field of the sciences, but other majors may be considered.

Preference is given first to minorities graduating from Olean High School (Dr. Hull's alma mater) and if no applicants meet that criteria, the second preference is for girls graduating from Olean High School. Second preference is for students graduating from any high school in Cattaraugus County meeting the above criteria.

Patro plans to study neuroscience at the University at Buffalo.

Madison Jones received the JoAnn Wehmeyer English Scholarship for $2,500.

The JoAnn Wehmeyer scholarship, established by a group of Olean High alumni in memory of Mrs. Wehmeyer who taught English at Olean High School for 42 years, is an award for a graduating senior recommended by the Olean English faculty and who has excellent writing skills and the ability to make a difference.

Jones will attend the University of Connecticut to study biomedical engineering.

Aaron Aiello and Anna Mest received the Tyler Bihler Memorial Scholarship.
