Shaker Nation Awards $250 Scholarship
to NHS Senior Jonmichael Talbert
In the spirit of preserving the Shaker legacy and passing it on to our Northwood Panthers, the Shaker Nation has established a small scholarship fund to benefit a Northwood senior who demonstrates excellence by balancing academics with sports, employment, clubs, church, and civic activities.
We are particularly proud to present this award this year to a young man who has not only done all of this, but who also shares the same sentiment as do those of us in the Shaker Nation: to cherish our history by sharing our time and talents with future generations. We asked for specific ways that alumni can make a positive and lasting impact on the community. Among several other things, he stated:
“Kids currently in school only know of these schools because they have heard the names mentioned. By speaking with alumni, they can learn so much more about the histories of these schools, which cannot be told by others as well as by the alumni who take pride and have many memories of attending these schools. Alumni are needed in the community to impact the youth by coaching Little League and other sports programs. By being involved in the youth of this community, those that still have pride in our town can instill that sense of pride in our youth, and we have a lot to be proud of!”
The Shaker Nation is therefore very pleased to present this 2015 scholarship award to Jonmichael Talbert.
