The Ford Family Foundation has named two Hood River area students as “Ford Scholars” for 2002-03.
Zachary Lucas of Hood River, a business major at Oregon State University, and Meghan Merz of Parkdale, a biology major at Pacific University, are among 136 scholars selected from Oregon and Northern California.
Lucas and Merz both graduated from Hood River Valley High School in 2002.
Ford scholars must attend or plan to attend an accredited non-profit, public or private college in their state of residence. The renewable scholarships cover 90 percent of each student’s unmet financial needs through college.
Kenneth W. Ford built his business, Roseburg Forest Products, from a one-man opereation in the 1940s to one of the region’s largest wood products manufacturers, and he established the foundation to help a number of causes, including educational scholarships.
