The Paul J. Falco Scholarship Committee awarded scholarships this year to eight Marble Cliff students.

Scholarships were awarded to Daniel McGregor, Alec Sichko, Kevin Frick, Meghan McDevitt, David Murray, Christine Roark, Peter Sichko and Colin Studebaker.

The awards are based on scholastic achievement, character, extra-curricular activities and service to school and community.

The scholarship was endowed by the late Paul J. Falco, who served 36 years as Marble Cliff mayor.

For 2008, the committee offered scholarships to both graduating high school seniors and full-time undergraduate students enrolled in a college or university.

To be eligible for consideration, a student must be a village resident for at least one year. High school applicants must have a grade point average of 3.0 or better.
