Congratulations again

Cassie Revell of Blaine at Denison University student is among those named as winners of the Heritage Scholarship. Revell is a 2004 graduate of Blaine high school.

Among Denison’s most prestigious awards, the Heritage Scholarship is a half-tuition award and is renewable for four years if the student achieves and maintains a stipulated grade point average.

“Heritage scholarships traditionally have contributed significantly to the intellectual environment at Denison,” said Anthony Lisska, professor of philosophy. “They have many opportunities to participate with other outstanding students in special academic programs such as first-year honors seminars and extracurricular activities sponsored by the honors program.”

(Ed. note: Last week The Northern Light printed an announcement from Whitworth University announcing that it had awarded a scholarship to Cassie Revell. It turns out that Ms. Revell had not accepted admission to Whitworth and had decided to attend Denison. The admissions office at Whitworth had jumped the gun and has sheepishly informed us that in the future they will announce scholarships only from students who actually attend the school. We congratulate Ms. Revell on her hard work and abilities that had two schools (that we know of) fighting for her presence.)

Still more congrats

Andrew Nahon of Blaine received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, magna cum laude, from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota during its 130th commencement exercises.

He is the son of Jonathon and Jane Nahon of Blaine.
