2018 Ottoville Lions Scholarship winner - Abby Hilvers


The Ottoville Lions Club continued their support of community youth by presenting Ottoville High School student Abby Hilvers with a scholarship of $1000 for continued education. The club presented Miss Hilvers with the scholarship at Ottoville High School Honors night, May 15th.  Abby is the daughter of Steve and Rhonda Hilvers and will be attending The Ohio State University majoring in Health Sciences on a Pre-Optometry track.


According to Joe Moreno, President, “Abby demonstrates so many great qualities that make her a deserving recipient of this scholarship. Helping young people continue their education is one of the challenges our community faces, and it’s a need our club continues to address. We are proud to be a part of helping her achieve her goals and hope that she continues a life of service. We are also extraordinarily grateful for the support and contributions we continue to receive from members of the community that allow us to make a difference.”


In addition to the scholarship, the club conducts a variety of projects and events, including Park Concessions, 250 Club drawing, glasses and scrap metal recycle programs, Eddie Eyeglasses, and an annual Reverse Draw night in November, as well as supporting other International, national, state and county charitable programs.
