Ironton High School Commencement
May 31, 2009

The Sunday after Memorial Day weekend brought seasonal weather for Ironton High School's annual commencement.  Dave Osborne presented the Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship. Highlights of the award speech are presented here:

Good evening. My name is Dave Osborne and I am the son of Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne.  This is the 11th year of the scholarship honoring an outstanding graduating senior at Ironton High School.  The scholarship is named for my father, who, as a surgeon and family physician, served the community of Ironton and Lawrence County for over 30 years before his passing in 1985 and my mother, who supported our family and my father and lived in Ironton almost all of her life before her passing in 2002.  The scholarship is a one-time $1,500 award given to a student who has achieved academic excellence, a significant level of extracurricular activities and has a purposeful involvement in the Ironton community.

Tonight's winner exemplifies what we look for in someone to award our scholarship.  Not only has our winner been outstanding in the classroom but has served Ironton and Lawrence County through extensive volunteer work.  She is tonight's valedictorian.  I am proud to present the 2009 Dr. and Mrs. Barney Osborne Memorial Scholarship to LAURA STEWART.
