Secor Scholarship

What is the Secor Scholarship?

The $2,000 renewable Secor Scholarship was established as a memorial to the Steven and Doris Secor bequest.  It is awarded to a high school senior living in Findlay or Hancock County who plans to attend an accredited institution of higher learning to pursue any undergraduate field of study, full-time in the subsequent academic year.

How is the selection made?

A committee of local volunteers review the applications and conduct interviews with the top candidates. The selection is based on a strong commitment to service, volunteering and extracurricular activities as well as academic excellence.

Secor Scholarship 2019 Recipient - Victoria Denike

United Way of Hancock County’s Secor scholarship committee is pleased to announce Findlay High School senior Victoria Denike as this year’s United Way Foundation Secor Scholar.

The daughter of Dr. Michael and Jennifer Denike, Victoria was selected because of her volunteerism, academic accomplishments, involvement in extracurricular and school activities and her ability to exemplify leadership skills.

Victoria has given back to other youth in the community as a camp counselor, aid, educator or assistant and can often be found volunteering in different capacities for local nonprofit, church and school events. She has spent a significant portion of her high school career participating in show choir as well as in school and community theater productions as a featured performer, assistant director and choreographer.  Victoria intends to pursue a degree in theater education.
