Chapter F, PEO recently honored the local PEO Ohio Scholars and announced the recipient of the “Jean L. Heiland, Louise Linton, Marjorie L. Diebel Scholarship.”
PEO, an organization that supports women’s education, has been active in Wilmington since Chapter F’s formation in 1925 and has been awarding a local scholarship to the top female graduate from Wilmington High School since 1935.

Chapter F is pleased to continue to have a close relationship with Jean’s family, especially with her daughter, Becky Heiland Haines.
