What's Current in Preservation at CPS . . .

At the May 21 Annual Meeting . . .


   The 2015 $1,000 scholarship winner is Nathan Mast, a 2015 graduate of Jackson High School. This autumn, Nathan will enroll at Ohio Technical College in the Classic Car Restoration Technology program.  The CPS Scholarship Committee, on behalf of all CPS members, offers Nathan best wishes. We are confident of his future success!


   Because no eligible applications for this award were received this year, no awards were presented.
   At the Annual Meeting, President Barb Hickman encouraged members to identify potential candidates for the 2016 awards and invite them to complete the simple application form (downloadable below).
   Many homeowners in the Canton area deserve recognition for preserving and restoring their homes and businesses that signify our community's architectural heritage.

The Canton Preservation Society's annual scholarship provides financial assistance to a Stark County student or graduate preparing for a career related to historic preservation.  Eligible applicants include students in technical, undergraduate or graduate study intending to enroll, or already enrolled, in a program in Historic Preservation or a related field which can include, but need be not limited to, Building Preservation, History, Architecture, American Studies, Urban Planning, or Museum Studies. 

The program of study must be at a U.S. university, college, or institution.  The student’s eligibility will be based partly on financial need and partly on the application materials, academic performance, community service and promise shown for future achievement, based on the judgment of a review panel.  The award is for a maximum of $1000.00 toward school tuition and paid directly to the school. 

Applications are available by calling the Canton Preservation Society at 330-452-9341, and must be postmarked no later than April 1, 2016.  The recipient will be honored at the CPS Annual Meeting in May 2016.
