C.R. Meyers was a long-time Ashland County Commissioner who served on the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention advisory board. Mr. Meyers was a strong supporter of OALPRP’s mission, and he was an advocate of litter prevention, recycling and professionals who promote those programs. The scholarship was named as a token of the organization’s appreciation for all his contributions, counsel, and support.

Ewalt Enrichment Scholarship
Personally, Della loved the arts and traveling. She was always involved in some local theatre production. Even her education programs were filled with puppets, skits and songs. Della's travels were inspiring to all. She traveled to many countries, learning about their cultures while sharing our culture. Della Ewalt touched so many lives, both at home and around the world.
It is because of Della's love of learning and life of adventure that OALPRP has instituted the Della Ewalt Enrichment Scholarship fund.
