Tim Timken Surprises Hoover Student with Impressive Scholarship
(December 10, 2015)
“This is one of the best parts of my job,” said Ward J. “Tim” Timken, chairman, CEO and president of TimkenSteel Corp., as he waited in anticipation for Logan Stahl to arrive at the Guidance Office in North Canton Hoover High School.
Stahl, a senior at Hoover, was soon to find out that he won a TimkenSteel Charitable Fund Awards Scholarship worth $140,000.
As Stahl came into the room, he was greeted by Timken who shook his hand and presented him with an oversized check for $35,000, renewable for up to three years. As he congratulated Stahl, Timken explained this contest was extremely competitive, with children of TimkenSteel employees from all over the world applying.
“It’s amazing,” said Stahl later as he recounted the experience. “I am so grateful.”
Timken had arranged for Stahl’s parents, Duane and Trish Stahl, to be there for the surprise. Duane Stahl works as a steel purchasing controller for TimkenSteel.
Later that morning, Elaine Russell Reolfi, vice president of communications and community relations of TimkenSteel, also visited Hoover to present a $5000 scholarship to senior Makayla Sutter. Sutter called her father, Daniel Sutter, director of marketing, automotive at TimkenSteel to share the good news.
“Thank you for all your help Dad,” Sutter said through tears of happiness.
In all, eight high school seniors, all children of TimkenSteel Corp. employees, were awarded $245,000 in scholarship funds throughout the morning. Scholarships were awarded based on academic and extracurricular achievement. Stahl won the largest of the scholarships awarded.
“These students are all standouts in what they do both inside and outside of the classroom,” said Reolfi. “And we’re proud to support their academic development as they follow in the footsteps of their talented parents.”
Stahl plans to attend Grove City College, Case Western Reserve or Carnegie Mellon University and study computer science. Sutter plans to pursue a degree in nursing and play tennis for Otterbein University.
