United Way of Hancock County’s Secor Scholarship committee has selected Trent Schroeder, a senior at Findlay High School, as this year’s United Way Foundation Secor Scholar.
The $2,000 renewable scholarship was established as a memorial to the Steven and Doris Secor bequest. It is awarded to a high school senior or high school graduate living in Findlay or Hancock County who plans to attend an institution of higher learning to pursue an undergraduate field of study full time.
Candidates must exhibit a strong commitment to service, volunteering, extracurricular involvement and academic excellence.
Schroeder, the son of Wil and Sandy Schroeder, was selected because of his volunteerism in and out of school, his vision when working on projects and his facilitation and leadership skills.
Some of Schroeder’s volunteer positions in the community include: digital display content manager at Findlay High School; co-chair of the Run Like It’s Recess 5K race for St. Michael Parish; and chairman of Findlay High School’s Relay for Life, which raised $20,000. Schroeder also worked extensively on a school food drive, not just collecting food, but researching hunger statistics and needs in Hancock County.
Schroeder will be honored at United Way of Hancock County’s annual meeting at 6:30 p.m. April 10. The meeting is open to the public. The cost to attend is $30 or $300 for a table of 10. To register, call the United Way office at 419-423-1432 or visit
