TOLEDO, OHIO, May 22, 2012 – The Board of Trustees of Toledo Community Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce that Ginae Bluitt of West Toledo is the recipient of a $1,500 Buckeye CableSystem/TV One Scholarship. This scholarship provides an annual, one-time award for graduating high school students of African American heritage who are permanent residents of Buckeye CableSystem’s Toledo service area to attend an accredited post-secondary institution of their choice.
Ms. Bluitt graduated from Central Catholic High School this month, and will attend The Ohio State University in the fall where she will study pharmacy.
Active throughout her high school years, Ms. Bluitt was involved in student government, National Honors Society and Spanish Club. Her community service involvement includes tutoring at CCHS, volunteering at the Heatherdowns Lucas County Public Library, participating in the University of Toledo EXCEL program, and attending pharmacy camp at the University of Toledo.
The Scholarship was established by Buckeye CableSystem and TV One, a cable television network targeting primarily African American adults with a broad range of lifestyle and entertainment-oriented programming. TV One is available on Buckeye CableSystem’s
digital channel number 186. Buckeye CableSystem serves more than 130,000 customers in the greater Toledo area, offering 300 digital, high-definition, and analog channels of entertainment and information, as well as video on demand. The locally owned firm also offers Buckeye Tel, residential telephone service, and Buckeye Express high-speed Internet access.
Scholarship applicants are required to have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA and submitted an essay addressing their career goals and how education/studies beyond high school will contribute to those goals.
Applications for the Buckeye CableSystem/TV One Scholarship of the Toledo Community Foundation are available through the Guidance Departments of high schools in the Buckeye CableSystem Toledo service area, generally after the first of the year. Scholarship awards are announced in April.
