State scholarship winner

-- Contributed

Gabby Bodo, a student at Harding Middle School, was one of four fifth-grade pupils in Ohio to win a $500 scholarship for her essay in the “Agriculture is Cool” contest held during the Ohio State Fair. Essays that are submitted are reviewed by a panel of judges with the top four honored as best in the state. Representatives of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Ohio State Fair and Ohio Farm Bureau presented Bodo with her check at a ceremony Nov. 2 held in front of her fellow students at Harding Middle School. During the ceremony, Bodo read her prize-winning essay aloud.
