The Lycoming County Chapter of the Lock Haven University Alumni Association has awarded scholarships to two area students. Zane William Cohick, from Salladasburg, and Alicia C. Miller, from Montoursville, have received scholarships to attend Lock Haven University, where they are now freshmen.
Cohick is a graduate of Jersey Shore Area Senior High School. He is a secondary education major with a focus in social studies. In high school, he participated in the school choir and track and field. He also attended the Second Mile Leadership Institute and the Senator Madigan Student Government seminars. In commenting on his career goals, he said, “Like many emerging adults, there are many options and opportunities that lie before me or that will open up to me further down the road. However, my career goals as of now are to be a successful college graduate, and to pursue a career in music and/or teaching.”
Miller is a graduate of Montoursville Area High School. She is majoring in secondary education with a concentration in social studies and plans to become a high school social studies teacher somewhere close to home. In high school, she was Key Club secretary and editor of the yearbook. Other activities included Student Government, Theatre Arts Club and Spanish Club. She hopes to be involved in student government at LHU. “I’m excited to be at LHU,” she said, “because I get to meet new people every day that have the same interests as me. She added, “LHU is a very welcoming college and that helps you adjust when you are a freshman!”
Cohick and Miller both expressed their gratitude to the Lycoming County Chapter for awarding their scholarships.
