The area’s most academically accomplished high school seniors, including 43 ILHS students and 4 OHP IL students, were encouraged to "think slow" during the 44th Annual Bellefontaine Rotary Club Honors Night held recently at Bellefontaine High School. 
More than 200 seniors from Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Calvary Christian, Indian Lake, Ohio Hi Point, Riverside and West Liberty-Salem Schools who have earned a 3.5 grade point average or higher during their last four years were recognized during the program. 
Ohio Northern University President Daniel DiBiasio was the featured speaker. He spoke about the advantage of getting a higher education.
"College demands contemplation and teaches us to think slow. You must sift through an enormous amount of information and learn to really examine and cultivate your power to think." Other reasons to consider a higher degree DiBiasio added are that it can take you places your've never been, it can introduce you to new people and points of view, and it can help you discover dreams you've never dreamed. 
At the conclusion of Honors Night, Rotary members announced the winners of this year’s seven $1,000 Bellefontaine Rotary Club Scholarships, including IL's own Ethan Fulkerson. This year’s scholarships bring the total amount contributed to local scholarships by the Bellefontaine Rotary Club over the years to $213,500.
