Symphony awards two scholarships

The Westerville Symphony has announced its first group of scholarship recipients.

Pianist Dominic Baer and cellist Jehdeiah Maitland, both 2013 Westerville North High School graduates, each received $500 to help with their Otterbein University educations.

To provide the scholarship funds, the symphony donated a portion of the proceeds from the first OhioHealth Beethoven 5K, which took place last August. The 2013 race will begin at 8 a.m. July 13 at Otterbein's Memorial Stadium.
