Muskingum University announced that first-year students Dominique DeLong (Buckeye Trail High School) and Olivia Dunlap (Meadowbrook High School) have been awarded financial support from the Dale W. Dickson Endowed Scholarship Fund.
The Dale W. Dickson Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by Mr. Dickson’s family, friends and the Mace Club – a social club at Muskingum University – following his death in 1998. 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, who graduated from Muskingum in 1965, was a member of the Mace Club and served on its advisory board after his graduation.
Mr. 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.
Active in his local community, Mr. 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.
Both Dominique and Olivia will begin their studies at Muskingum University in fall 2019.
