GREENVILLE—Recent Greenville High School graduate Jalena LeMaster earned the Rumpke Darke County Scholarship for her commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.
LeMaster plans to attend The Ohio State University in the fall and major in Agricultural Engineering. She was captain of the school dance team, a member of National Honor Society and volunteer at Western Buckeye Christian Service Camp.
“I will be a part of a growing trend through engineering cheaper, more productive, and better methods for environmental approaches to farming.” LeMaster wrote in an essay. “I want to help create new and innovative ways to help not only our country, but the rest of the world.”
