Happy summer 2021 contributors to the Seth Mitchell Hero 5K. We hope your summer is going well. We are all blessed that it is going differently than last year! As always we want to keep you updated on how your investment in the scholarship campaigns are going.
Due to Covid 19 we held the 5K virtually in 2020. You guys made the event fun and meaningful. We had over 100 participants and raised a significant amount of funds, even for a challenging year.
Our scholarship committee thanks you. Each year we hope to raise enough to fund scholarships for deserving seniors from Loveland High School where Seth graduated in 1997. Because of you, we have been successful again.
Let us introduce the recipients for 2021.
The Seth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship: Teri Clark has a keen interest in science and math. According to her application essay, her goal is to “treat my friends the same way Seth treated his friends, with kindness and loyalty”. Teri said that she was humbled by the opportunity to apply for the scholarship in Seth’s name. In our interview with Teri we found that she has overcome personal hardships that strengthened her and helped her find a passion to serve others by pursuing a career in the medical field.
Let Us Never Forget/Mitchell Family Scholarship: Madeline Schamel has used hard work, positivity and determination to overcome medical challenges during her high school years. One letter of reference said of Maddie, “while many teenagers facing those obstacles would choose flight, Maddie embraced the uncertainty and fights with poise and maturity beyond her years”.
Like Seth, these young women are known for hard work, determination, selflessness, kindness and loyalty. We are proud to have them pursue their dreams with a financial boost from all of you that have contributed to the Hero 5k in honor of Seth’s service and sacrifice.
Lastly, we do want to announce that the 12th Annual Cpt. Seth Mitchell Hero 5K (www.sethmitchellhero5k.org) will be held on October 16 at 11 AM in beautiful Nisbet Park in Historic Downtown Loveland Ohio.
We will also offer a virtual run again. You’ll be able to do your run/walk during the month of October from any location. The website will open soon for registrations and donations.
Thank you all and blessings be upon you,
Steve, Connie and Drew Mitchell, Family of Captain Seth Mitchell, USMC
