CLINTON COUNTY — The Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) recognized 82 of Ohio’s top students from across the state in April during the 28th Annual Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Awards Program, named in honor of Ohio’s 31st State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
The award was established in 1989 by the OESCA to promote and recognize outstanding student leaders for their academic achievement and service to their school and communities. One senior from each county in Ohio is eligible to receive this honor, and Avary Beatty, a senior at East Clinton High School, was selected as the Clinton County winner from the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center.
“Over the last 28 years, the OESCA has recognized over 2000 scholars and student leaders during this event,” said Beth Justice, Southern Ohio ESC Superintendent. “We wish Avary great success as she pursues her studies at the college level.”
Beatty is a leader in her school’s academic, civic, and athletic community.
Avary is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish and Key Clubs. She has served as a tutor for students with disabilities, participated in several community outreach programs, and competed on East Clinton’s volleyball, softball, and Quick Recall teams.
Beatty looks forward to living in an urban area and one day proving that just because she comes from a small rural area does not mean that she cannot accomplish anything the sets their heart to.
Avary Beatty is the daughter of Dawn Moon.
