The Findlay Service League annually awards a scholarship(s) to a graduating high school senior from a Hancock County School who has demonstrated service to the community by volunteering, practicing good citizenship and leading by example.  It has been a FSL tradition to present the scholarship recipient(s) to the FSL membership at our May meeting.

The FSL scholarships are the Spirit of Volunteerism and the Patti Bash Memorial Scholarship.  The Patti Bash Memorial Scholarship was recently created in the fall of 2011.  Patti was a FSL member from 1983-1991.  She was also involved in other organizations such as Coterie, Handbags that Help, Blanchard Valley Hospital Auxiliary, St. Michael School and Parish and St. Wendelin High School.
