Wauseon’s Caleb Blanchong in running for Evans Scholarship


Tonight, Ohio high school seniors will gather at Scioto Country Club in Upper Arlington as they seek to capture a spot in one of the nation’s largest privately funded scholarship programs, the Western Golf Association’s Chick Evans Scholarship for golf caddies.

Wauseon resident Caleb Blanchong, who attends Wauseon High School, will be among the finalists.

The full tuition and housing college scholarship is valued at an estimated $80,000 over four years. Candidates will be notified as to whether they are awarded the Evans Scholarship about one week following their selection meeting interviews.
