Evan Ellacott Wins Voice of Democracy Honors
Cuyahoga Heights senior Evan Ellacott was recently honored with the Voice of Democracy Youth Scholarship presented on behalf of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for his passion and love of democracy. Commander Mike Rebeta and Senior Vice Commander Nada Fleming from VFW Post 7609 presented Evan with a certificate and $200.00 scholarship award during a brief ceremony on Friday, April 7th at Cuyahoga Heights High School. After graduation, Evan plans on attending Baldwin-Wallace University to pursue a degree in Film Studies. The Voice of Democracy was established by the VFW in 1947 and provides high school students, grades 9 – 12, with the unique opportunity to express themselves through a democratic or patriotism-inspired essay. Across the country, high school students benefit from the generosity of the VFW, who use this scholarship as a way of investing in future generations of American patriotism. Congratulations Evan! The Cuyahoga Heights Schools is proud of your accomplishments and love for country!
