WOOSTER, Ohio -- College students Monica Hansen and Adam Harbaugh have received the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s (OARDC) 2003 Family Scholarship Awards. The $500 awards, to be used to pay tuition and other college costs, were presented by OARDC Director Steve Slack on behalf of the OARDC Family Scholarship Selection Committee in a luncheon ceremony in Wooster. Hansen, daughter of Robert and Susan Hansen of Wooster, has been accepted into Ohio State University’s College of Nursing. She plans to complete the four-year program and become a registered nurse, possibly pursuing a master’s degree in the field as well. Her father is a research scientist in the Department of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering, based on OARDC’s Wooster campus. Harbaugh, son of Phillip and Sharon Harbaugh of Polk, is working toward a bachelor’s degree in middle childhood education at the University of Akron. His goals are to be a licensed science and social-studies teacher for grades 4-9 and, upon securing a teaching position, to pursue a master’s degree and assist his school as an athletic coach. His father is a plumber in the Facilities Services department at Wooster. Dependents of OARDC employees are eligible for the awards, which are funded by private donations from OARDC employees and others through the Campus Campaign of Ohio State University. OARDC is the research arm of Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. Faculty, staff and graduate students work in Wooster, Columbus and Piketon and at 10 outlying branches. - 30 -
