The James Kura Memorial Scholarship
OACDL will award THREE $1,000.00 scholarships to Ohio High School seniors based on an essay to the question provided. Seniors must submit an application (download from link below), a copy of their high school transcript, and a 2 page essay based on the question on the application.
The 2013 question was:
It is now generally accepted that the State of Texas executed an innocent man when they put Carlos DeLuna to death. In light of this, is he execution of an innocent person the cost of doing business when imposing the death penalty? Or is the execution of an innocent person a reason to do away with the death penalty?
The 3 winners:
Sarah Davis from Louisville High School. Sarah will be attending The Ohio State University.
Nicolaus Discepoli from St. Xavier High School. Nicolaus will be attending Belmont University.
Mary Mowrey from Fostoria St. Wendelin. Mary will be attending Ursuline College.
We wish all 3 winners the best of luck next year!
The 2014 scholarship question and application will be posted in November of this year.
