Ironton High School Commencement
June 3, 2001

Ironton High School's 133rd commencement exercises took place on Sunday, June 3, 2001 at Ironton Tanks Memorial Stadium (pictured at the right).  Dave Osborne presented a plaque to the Class of 2001 Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship - Christy Lilly.

Here is the text of the Scholarship Introduction:

The Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship is named in honor of my father who served Ironton and surrounding communities as a family physician and surgeon for over 30 years until his passing in 1985.  I am presenting our third scholarship award tonight.  This award, in the amount of $1,000, is given to a graduating senior at Ironton High School that has performed in an outstanding manner both inside the classroom and in extracurricular activities during their years at Ironton High. 

Once again this year's applicants were all very worthy and I applaud the quality of students that are graduating here tonight.  Our choice is always a difficult one.

This year's winner accomplished many things while at Ironton High School.  Our winner was a Magna Cum Laude graduate and finished in the top ten in the class.  Our winner also took time to volunteer with many organizations to help the Ironton community.  But most outstanding was the long list of extracurricular activities and achievements.  Our winner was a member of student government, a member of the National Honor Society, the Math and Spanish Honorarias, and participated in such wide-ranging activities as the school musical, Marching Band, and varsity athletics such as Track, Volleyball and Cross-Country.  If our winner's list of accomplishments and achievements while at Ironton High School is any predictor of success, then certainly a bright future awaits.

It is my honor and privilege to present the Dr. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship Award for the Class of 2001 to CHRISTY LILLY.
