Sara St. Clair awarded Dale W. Dickson Scholarship

A first-year Muskingum University student has been awarded financial support from the Dale W. Dickson Endowed Scholarship Fund. Sara St. Clair, a 2017 Meadowbrook High School graduate from Senecaville, Ohio, will begin her studies at Muskingum this fall. Sara is the daughter of Eric and Susan St. Clair.

As a high school student, Sara was in the top 10 percent of her class and was a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council. She also played basketball and softball.

The Dale W. Dickson Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 1998, following Mr. Dickson’s death, by his family, friends and the Mace Club, a social club at Muskingum. Dickson, who graduated from Muskingum in 1965, was a member of the Mace Club and served on its advisory board after his graduation. The purpose of the fund is to make it financially possible for deserving and qualified students, preferably from Guernsey County, to attend Muskingum University.

Dickson was a teacher and coach at Meadowbrook High School, Cambridge High School, Cloverleaf High School near Cleveland and Mt. Vernon High School. Beginning in 1986, he was employed by Cambridge Savings Bank, where he served as vice president and secretary and as a board member of Camco Mortgage.

Dickson was a member and past president of the Kiwanis Club, the Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce Board, the Guernsey County United Way campaign and the board of directors of the Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center. In tribute to his college athletic career, he was inducted into the Muskingum University Hall of Fame in 1993.
