Greeneview High School would like to announce the 2020 Higham winners. The Higham Scholarships are awarded to one boy and one girl in every graduating class at GHS. The scholarship pays for all expenses (tuition, books, room and board, travel) at any state school in Ohio. The scholarship is managed by the Jamestown Area Foundation.
The 2020 female recipient is Shelby Rutherford. She plans to attend Wright State University and major in Nursing and to get her EMT certification. Throughout high school she played soccer, basketball, and track and participated in many clubs such as, National Honor Society, Student Council, Principal's Advisory, service club, and Students Opposed to Drugs and Alcohol. Shelby believes her biggest accomplishment has been going on a mission trip to Grand Goave, Haiti. She hopes to go on more mission trips using her training in nursing.
The 2020 male recipient is James (JR) Saunders. While a student at Greeneview, JR enjoyed participating in Soccer (Team Captain, 2nd Team OHC, 3rd Team All Miami Valley, and Senior All Star Team Member), Baseball, Class Officer, Student Council, National Honor Society, Principal’s Advisory, and 4-H.

He looks forward to attending OSU with his sister in the fall, he wants to share that he is truly thankful for this opportunity and for his experiences at Greeneview High School which have prepared him for the next step in life.
