The Simply Slavic scholarship committee panel will select the winners after reviewing their essays and academic achievements. The deadline for scholarship applicants is July 31. The winners will be announced in early August.

Applications are available at SimplySlavic.org under the tab “forms.” For more information, call 330-333-1441or email info@simplyslavic.org.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES: The Ohio Education Association Educational Foundation has made a donation of $5,000 to the Anthony V. Spano Foundation’s School Supplies Fund. This donation helps make it possible for the Spano Foundation to continue its School Supplies Fund for the upcoming school year.

The fund was established to help the primary and secondary school teachers purchase much-needed classroom supplies for their underprivileged students, which will in turn help further their educations.

In 2021, in addition to the OEAAEF donation, the Spano Foundation also received an anonymous donation that enabled the Spano Foundation to give to 15 school districts and nearly $27,000 in school supplies were delivered.

The fund was created to help bridge the gap for schools and teachers who no longer have the dollars due to cutbacks from the state. Visit SpanoFoundation.com.
