The Mid-Ohio Valley Safety Council announced last week the first recipient of the MOVSC Scholarship Program. Caleigh Doan, a recent graduate of Marietta High School, was presented a $500 check to apply towards her continuing education.

“We are pleased to announce our very first scholarship winner,” said Carrie Ankrom, MACC president. “Ms. Doan has a spirit of learning and dedication to further her career in the safety and health field. It is our pleasure to help her achieve her educational goals through this new scholarship program.”

“The new MOVSC Scholarship program is an important part of fulfilling our commitment to workforce growth and development in the safety and health fields,” said Joe Wesel, chairman of the board of the Mid-Ohio Valley Safety Council. “We wish Caleigh the very best in the pursuit of their educational goals.”

The Scholarship Program was launched from the award money from the 3rd place title for the 2016 Safety Council of The Year through the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation. The MOVSC Board of Directors goal is to grow the fund with the recent title of 2nd Place Safety Council of the Year title for 2017.

Established in 1988, the MOVSC is co-sponsored by the Marietta Area Chamber of Commerce and the Ohio BWC.
