The Chamber Foundation of Sandusky County is a charitable 501c3 entity.  Established during the Chamber of Commerce 60th Year Celebration in 2006, the foundation is a vehicle to enhance the quality of life in Sandusky County through the Chamber of Commerce and charitable organizations.  Individuals, corporations and organizations wishing to make contributions to address community needs and opportunities can do so through the Chamber’s Foundation. 



The Chamber Foundation of Sandusky County has awarded their 2017 scholarship to RaeAnna Harner of Lakota High School.

The independent judging panel chose Harner based on the essay she submitted because it spoke to the prompt which was to

describe at least three ways that living in Sandusky County has benefitted her life thus far.  The title, “What Sandusky County

Means to Me” was perfect for her heartfelt writing. It had a good introduction as well as a good conclusion, and it followed all

the criteria listed. The judges were also impressed by the number of extracurricular activities she is involved with while working

and that she is still ranked number 1 in her class with a 4.0 GPA.

Those activities include: Band-First Chair and Flute Section Leader, Varsity Cheerleading-Captain for 2 years, Student

Council-Vice President Senior Year, Yearbook, National Honor’s Society-President, HOBY Representative, and Principal’s

Advisory Council. Community Activities that she is involved in include: Rock the Youth Ministries class leader, Good Shepherd

Nursing Home-BINGO Night Volunteer, and Project MORE-volunteer reading program for younger kids. She is a Crew Leader at

McDonald’s and a Hostess at KemoSabes Roadhouse Grill. RaeAnna will be attending The University of Findlay in the Fall,

majoring in Sonography.

This is the 10th year in a row that the Chamber Foundation of Sandusky County has been able to award a scholarship to a

graduating senior from Sandusky County.  The scholarship is made possible through the generosity of local businesses that

support various events that are sponsored by the Chamber Foundation, which is the non-profit side of the Chamber of Commerce

of Sandusky County.
