Two Dallas High School graduates have received Corey A. Ehret Scholarship Awards.
Megan Redlich received the Corey A Ehret Student of the Quarter Scholarship in memory of Ehret for her artist talents such as painting the Dallas insignia on the school gym floor and authoring the book “Demise of the Spirit’s Guiding Lady.” Ehret was recognized for two consecutive years with the Dallas High School “School Spirit” Award.
Katie Metcalf received the Corey A. Ehret Cross County Scholarship Award in memory of Ehret for her determination and achievement, not only as a runner, but as a strong team member and never giving it up for something easier.
The Corey Ehret Cross Country Scholarship is awarded in memory of Ehret who, after 40 weeks of arduous chemotherapy and radiation, returned to run a full season with the Dallas High School cross country team.
“Never stop believing, pray often and no pain no gain” were Ehret’s sayings and actions, stated the Ehret family. “His determination to achieve in spite of the side effects of his treatment gave him the strength to once again be a part of the Dallas High School cross country team.”
Recipients received an engraved crystal glass valor award along with a $500 scholarship. Eligible candidates were selected by a team made up of faculty, administration athletic department and the Ehret family.
