BELLEFONTAINE – A scholarship from the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center will now honor former board member Warren Stevens.

Stevens died in a vehicular crash on his way to the September meeting of the board. He had served that board and the Urbana City Schools board for more than a decade.

The board renamed one of its scholarships the Warren Stevens Memorial Scholarship at its Oct. 26 meeting. Board members donate to the scholarship, which awards a minimum of of $1,000 each year, Ohio Hi-Point Communications Coordinator Jessie Behnke said.

“This was the board’s desire to honor Mr. Stevens,” she said.

The board also approved a scrap sale allocation, authorizing the treasurer to accept $53.73 received from the sale of scrap materials to D&J Scrap Metals, and to deposit those funds in several different funds in the budget.

In other action, the board:

•Approved substitute bus driver pay at $15 per hour while driving or sitting, effective Nov. 1, 2016.

•Approved an out-of-state trip for six students visiting three colleges and radio/concert venues in Nashville, Tenn., from Nov. 4-6, 2016 (alternate dates Dec. 9-11, 2016).

•Approved out-of-state professional development.

•Accepted a $500 donation to the Marysville BPA from Memorial Health of Marysville; and a $200 donation to the Marysville BPA from Richwood Bank of Richwood.

•Approved revising contracts for classified staff for the 2016-17 school year.

•Approved a textbook adoption for the Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology 7th Edition from F.A. Davis Company publishers.
