Ironton High School Commencement
May 29, 2004

On a rainy Sunday evening during Memorial Day Weekend, Dave Osborne presented the 2004 Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Scholarship at the Ironton Sports Center. Here is the text of the award presentation.

Good evening. My name is Dave Osborne and I am here to present the Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Scholarship. This year marks the first year that my mom is included in the scholarship. My mom passed away in September 2002 and, like her husband, was a strong supporter of education and Ironton. Therefore, it is only appropriate that her name be included in this scholarship award. Dr. Osborne, as many of you know, served the community of Ironton for over 30 years as a doctor and surgeon before his passing in 1985. He was a lover of all things Ironton and he would be happy to know that his name is associated with something as positive as a scholarship here at this great institution.

The Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Scholarship is a one-time $1,000 scholarship given to a graduating senior who not only excelled in the classroom, but also excelled outside the classroom, including participating in extracurricular activities, as well as community involvement. Tonight's winner certainly exceeds all of these qualifications. It is my distinct privilege to award the Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship to JACQUELINE HEIGHTON.
