Ironton High School Commencement
June 4, 2000

On Sunday, June 4, 2000, Dave Osborne attended the 132nd commencement held at Ironton High School.  Dave presented the plaque pictured above to the Scholarship Award winner of the Class of 2000 - Alisa Philabaun

Here is the text of the Scholarship Introduction as given by Dave Osborne at the commencement ceremonies

The Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship  is named in honor of a longtime physician and surgeon who served Ironton for over 30 years until his passing in 1985.  This is the second year of the Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship here at Ironton High School.  The scholarship award is set at $1,000 and our winner is based on outstanding academic achievement, ACT scores and extracurricular activity both at Ironton High School and the community as a whole

This year's applicants were all very worthy and our Board of Directors had a hard time in selecting the finalists and the eventual winner.

Our winner this year is outstanding in every way.  Our winner finished in the top ten in the class, was active in many community events and charitable activities.  At Ironton High School our winner was a member of the National Honor Society, a Summa Cum Laude graduate here this evening, and an officer in student government.  Our winner also participated on the track, cross-country and volleyball teams and student organizations like the Science Club, the Math Club and the Spanish Club.  A very impressive list.

I am proud to announce the winner of the 2000 Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship Winner - ALISA PHILABAUN
