Three high-achieving Clinton County high school seniors received the Honda-OSU Math Medal Award from a partnership between Honda and The Ohio State University. The award recognizes the top senior mathematics student in 221 high schools in southwest and central Ohio.

The math medal winners from Clinton County are Aaron Livingston, East Clinton; Harbor Lovin, Blanchester; and Callianna VanPelt, Clinton-Massie.

This is the eighth anniversary of the Southwest region Math Medal Awards, presented by the Honda-OSU Partnership, a university-industry partnership that supports programs in education and research to benefit the transportation industry. This year 98 seniors from 16 counties in southwest Ohio received the award.

Eighty-one of the honorees attended the Southwest region ceremony on October 29 at the GE Aviation Learning Center in Cincinnati. Recognized as their school’s top math student in the Class of 2017, each student received a pewter math medal, plaque and $100 gift card from Honda and Ohio State’s College of Engineering.

In addition, the award comes with a $3,000 scholarship opportunity at Ohio State’s College of Engineering for the 2017-2018 academic year. Over the past seven years, 42 Southwest region math medal recipients have gone on to receive the $3,000 scholarship.
