Patricia GibsonMCS News, MHSAA News

Graduating Marion High School seniors are invited to apply for the MHSAA F. Ritchie Walton Scholarship.

The MHSAA F. Ritchie Walton Endowment for the Arts was established in 2021, combining the MHSAA Giant Arts Endowment, founded in 2015, and the F. Ritchie Walton Endowment, founded in 2002 in honor of innovative music educator F. Ritchie Walton, who put Marion High School on the map with excellent music and theatre programs. Walton’s legacy lives on in the performing arts center named for him at Marion High School.

The scholarship honors Marion High School students for their accomplishments and involvement in arts education, and their plans to pursue a career in the arts.
