Pickaway HELPS Announces Scholarship
for First Generation College Students
Pickaway HELPS is pleased to announce the Pickaway HELPS/Ula Jean Ater Metzler scholarship, specifically for first-generation college students. One scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior at each of the four county high schools who will be the first in their immediate family to complete a post-secondary credential or degree. Pickaway HELPS’ mission is to make education beyond high school possible for all students in Pickaway County and the scholarship was created in honor of Metzler, the founder of the organization. Applications are available in the guidance office of each high school and are due by February 26th.

Pickaway HELPS (Higher Education Learning Partners for Students) is a collaboration between the four school districts in Pickaway County along with the Pickaway County Board of Commissioners to make education beyond high school possible for all residents of Pickaway County.
PCN is organized and funded by the Pickaway County Community Foundation.
