MILL HALL — The reunion committee of the Old Mill Hall School recently awarded two scholarships of $1,000 each to Ryan Mayes and Tara Reese of Central Mountain High School. Both students were direct descendants of a former Mill Hall School student.

Ryan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Greg Mayes was sponsored by his grandmother, the late Alice Pogue Weaver, from the class of 1956. He will be attending Penn State University.

Tara, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Reese, was sponsored by her grandmother, Phyllis Duke Widmann, from the class of 1953. Tara will be attending Lycoming College.

Selection of the scholarship winners was based upon applications, school transcripts, letter of recommendation and personal essays.

Ryan, Tara and their parents were honored for their achievements at a reunion luncheon of the former Old Mill Hall School students, faculty and friends.
