All of these scholarships are available by filing out this one application.
Buckeye State Bank Scholarship
Buckeye State Bank is offering a nonrenewable $1,000 scholarship. Applicants must be a Riverside High School Senior, who wishes to further their education after high school. To apply you must fill out the Riverside Common Application AND write an essay on “What community means to you”.
Deb Jackson Scholarship
The Deb Jackson Memorial Scholarship was established in 2001 to honor the memory of Deb, who was a bus driver at Riverside for many years. Deb was a very fun loving person who was actively involved at the school.  When she wasn’t driving her regular route she could be found at most athletic events supporting her sons, Scott and Gregg. She was kind and cared very much for each of the students who rode her bus. 

The only criteria for this scholarship is that the student must be a graduating senior attending Riverside High School. The scholarship amount is $400. The recipient is chosen by the family. Students may apply for this scholarship by completing the Riverside Common Application and indicating their desire to apply for the Deb Jackson Memorial Scholarship. 
Mickie Leagre Scholarship
Established by Richard M. Leagre (Class of 1955) in honor of his wife, Ruth Maxine (Keenen) Leagre (Class of 1956).

Following her graduation from high school in the spring of 1956, Mickie took an evening college class and worked full-time at the ASC office in Bellefontaine until she had saved enough money to enroll at Ohio Northern University in the fall of 1957, majoring in elementary education. Despite marriage and a baby, she completed her two year certification requirements in 1959, and was certified to teach in Ohio.

The selection is made annually by a Committee of faculty selected and chaired by the Riverside Schools Superintendent on the basis of criteria that exemplify a strong determination to achieve higher education. Applicants must show a financial need, and the academic ability to be successful at the college level. Exceptionally high grades in high school are not required. The Committee has been asked to give preference to a student desiring to major in elementary education, but that is certainly not a prerequisite, and the Committee, in its discretion, may make grants to any worthy students seeking higher education.

Scholarship amount is $1,000
