TOLEDO—Tanner Calvelage of Toledo St. John’s Jesuit High School was among the 54 graduating seniors who were awarded college scholarships from the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) in June.
Tanner earned seven varsity letters in football, baseball and basketball at St. John's and graduated with a 3.89 grade point average. The recipient of a $2,000 OHSAA Foundation Scholarship presented by Taco Bell, he plans to study civil engineering at Ohio Northern University.
OHSAA handed out a total of $66,000 in college scholarships during its 20th annual Scholar-Athlete Scholarship Banquet in Columbus, with winners selected by each of the six OHSAA district athletic boards.
Scholar-athlete recipients are selected based on a point system which rewards students for grade point averages; ACT or SAT scores; varsity letters earned; individual and team athletic honors; and an essay. There are seven, 10 or 13 recipients from each district, depending upon the number of schools within the district.
