WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Eleven Trumbull County students are getting some big help going to college, to the tune of $23,000.
They all received scholarships Wednesday morning from the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation.
Chairman of the Foundation Patrick Wilson said that these scholarships are not only an investment in the students, but in the community.
