Mitchell Bell of Dublin Jerome High School, Matt Hockman of Dublin Coffman High School and David Moyer of Jerome High School will attend the event, to be held June 13-21 on the campus of Bowling Green State University.

Bishop Watterson High School recently honored students who earned a 4.0 or higher grade-point average for each quarter of the school year at the annual "Top 4.0" banquet.

Dublin residents recognized at the banquet were Erica Ernst, Lyndsey Faherty, Daiva Gerbec, Amanda Hadad, Maria Harmon, Taylor Stein and Daniel Walsh.

Karabinos is among 30 recipients of the scholarship, awarded annually to children of Emerson employees. He plans to study engineering.

He is the son of Tom Karabinos, director/partner channels at Liebert North America in Columbus.

The winners of the Emerson scholarship receive $1,500 per academic year for four years. Selection is made based on academic performance of the applicants: grade point average, class rank and national test scores.  Participation in school activities and community involvement are also considered in the selection.
