Jackie Ahlers - Vandalia Butler Foundation
Jackie Ahlers Memorial Scholarship was established in 2002 in honor of Jackie, who tragically lost her life in a car accident with five of her roommates from Bowling Green State University. She was a Vandalia Butler graduate and a sophomore at BGSU, pursuing a degree in Education.
Jackie influenced many young people through her vibrant personality, smile, and willingness to help others. She was a very caring individual and often went above and beyond for someone in need of help. She was a friend to every individual who she met and accepted them for who they were. Her selfless acts of kindness were a true gift.
Jackie’s legacy of helping and caring for people continues through this scholarship. It is intended to assist a Vandalia Butler high school senior who is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree at one of the state universities in Ohio.
