Miller wins national award

Catherine L. Miller of Warner Robins was named the recipient of the F. Gerald Ham Scholarship given by the Society of American Archivists. The award will be presented in August in New Orleans. The award is valued at $7,500.

Miller is a graduate student in the master of archival studies program at Clayton State University in Morrow. Miller, the 2004 Warner Robins High School valedictorian, was profiled in The Telegraph four years ago, after she’d won an award for her research into the 1922 lynching of John “Cocky” Glover near Macon.

Perry students awarded scholarship

The Perry Kiwanis Club recently awarded its annual scholarships to two local students. Seth Schofill, a 2013 graduate of Perry High School, and Jessica Grace Springer, a 2013 graduate at The Westfield School, are the recipients, according to a news release.

The scholarship is designed to pay $1,500 per year over the next four years. Students are selected on a basis of scholastic achievement, extracurricular activity and financial need. They are required to maintain a 3.0 grade-point average and be a full-time student to keep the award all four years, according to the news release.

Schofill will attend the Georgia Institute of Technology and pursue a degree in biomedical engineering. Springer is pursuing a degree in early childhood education at Georgia College & State University.
