Mervin Britton Memorial Scholarship

Mr. Mervin Britton, long time educator for thirty-three years in Clark County, has established a trust through Security National Bank for scholarships benefiting Clark County High School students.  Each county high school will have the opportunity to submit applications of qualified candidates to the Clark County Educational Service Center during the spring of each year.

Mr. Britton came to New Carlisle Local, now Tecumseh Local, in 1945 to teach math at New Carlisle High School.  After teaching many years, Mr. Britton became a school counselor at Tecumseh High School.  In 1961, he came to the Clark County Board of Education, now the Clark County Educational Service Center, as of Pupil Personnel and attendance officer.  Mr. Britton retired from the ESC in June 1974.

The applicant must be accepted for enrollment in a four-year college or university to receive formal training in teaching or related areas, such as speech and hearing therapy, etc.

Security National Bank will send a scholarship check to the student’s college or university.  The scholarship is renewable for three succeeding years if the student remains eligible for such a scholarship.

This year,  we are able to award 8 - $2,500 scholarships, renewable for up to 4 years ( for a total of $10,000 over 4 years)as long as the student continues to meet the eligibility requirements.
