The 72nd Annual Scioto County Honors Music Festival took place Sunday afternoon, April 6, at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts. Each year, music teachers select a deserving student to receive a $500 scholarship toward his or her college study of music. This year’s recipient was Ty Bender of Valley High School. Ty has been accepted at Marshall University and Ohio University and is awaiting acceptance to Ohio State University.
