The committee for the Christopher M. Potts Memorial Scholarship has chosen Jaylen Armey from Continental High School and Adam von der Embse from Kalida High School as the 2017 recipients of this $2000 college scholarship.
The Christopher M. Potts Memorial Scholarship was established out of love and respect for Chris Potts, a 1997 Continental High School graduate who died in an automobile accident on June 28th, 1997.
