Manchester junior Taylor Young recently received the SCOESC Gifted Scholarship Award, which will help fund her trip to New York City this summer to attend Camp Fashion Design.

Manchester Local School District recently announced that student Taylor Young is receiving the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center Gifted Scholarship Award. Taylor is currently a junior at Manchester High School. Taylor was awarded the scholarship during the awards ceremony at the Friends Center in Portsmouth on May 11. The scholarship will pay for the summer enrichment program Taylor has chosen. Taylor will be attending Camp Fashion Design in New York City in July, where she will enhance her knowledge of fashion design and meet many individuals who have cemented themselves in the industry. These include individuals from America’s Top Model, as well as popular fashion designers.

Each year the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center (ESC) offers scholarships to currently enrolled fifth to eleventh grade students who have been identified as Gifted (as defined by the Ohio Department of Education). Students select what program they are most interested in attending and then apply for the ESC scholarship. A committee of educators and administrators collaborate to determine how to disperse the available funds that have been raised by the ESC Gifted Services Program through grant writing and donations from local businesses, organizations, and individuals.

Thanks to several donors, the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center was able to award scholarships to 40 students totaling $30,600. This competitive grant is open to all gifted students affiliated with the South Central Ohio ESC. Congratulations to Taylor for being one of these 40 scholarship recipients.
