Each year the Heather Twig of Trinity Health System Auxiliary awards the Maryanne K. Pflug Scholarship to outstanding area students who will be majoring in business and marketing related majors in college. The scholarship is a tribute to the late Heather Twig member Maryanne K. Pflug, who was an outstanding businesswoman locally and internationally, it was noted.
This year, the Twig Scholarship Committee voted to award the scholarship to Melia Baker of Edison High School and Megan Keenan of Steubenville High School. Both submitted a listing of their accomplishments and honors during their high school years to the committee for sondieration. "It is truly refreshing to know that we have youth who are not only dedicated to academic excellence, but also with a sense of community involvement," said Anita Jackson, committee member. "I was extremely impressed with how these young ladies balance their lives, with a strong sense of devotion to community and family and still maintain noted ranking in the academic realm," said Terri Antill, also a committee member.
Baker, daughter of Amy Pipo and the late Curtis Baker, will attend Franciscan University of Steubenville, while Keenan, the daughter of Jane Hanlin and Charles Keenan, will attend Ohio State University.
