The Bay Village Chapter of the League of Women Voters Cuyahoga Area has named two 2013 Bay High School graduates as outstanding “Good Citizens” of the school and community. Sarah Melenick and Benjamin Nortz were each awarded a $1,000 college scholarship at the recent Kiwanis Awards Night. Sarah and Ben were chosen for their superior qualities of character, scholarship, and leadership.
Sarah has been involved with service organizations at Bay High and has been a Student Trustee of the Bay Education Foundation. At Miami University, she looks forward to majoring in marketing and to participating in student government, activity planning and study abroad. Ben’s interests include running, kayaking, politics, and music. He will attend the United States Naval Academy. Bay’s League chapter is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year. The Good Citizen Scholarship is an annual award in memory of long-time Bay League members Maxine M. McQuate, who was a champion of students becoming involved in government, and George Serb, a community historian and peerless citizen activist.
