WHEELING – More than 200 outstanding students from schools across Ohio County have received the prestigious Stifel Award.

A total of $202,880 was awarded to 219 deserving students in the 2022 Stifel Awards, and the awards were recently mailed to the recipients. Stifel directors Diane Crowl, Paula McClure and Joan Stamp said there will be no Stifel Awards ceremony this year, but expect the ceremony to return in the future.

WesBanco of Wheeling is the trustee of the Stifel Trust Fund, and Stamp credited WesBanco chartered financial analyst Steve Kellas for overseeing the trust. She also thanked Ohio County Schools Federal Programs Director Walt Saunders for his work recognizing students.

Stamp said the Trustees are proud to continue the tradition of the Stifel Prize and that the Stifel Trust is providing students with such a large sum of money. She noted that she and the trustees were also thrilled that the Stifel Trust was able to fund the Ohio County Schools Rope Camp and Robotics Camp.

“The fund has grown over the years, and we are fortunate to increase the prize money this year,” Stamp said. “It’s the reward for hard work. In addition to being able to increase the price, we also subscribe to the summer rope program and robotics. It was really fun to see the kids getting so involved.

Saunders thanked the Stifel administrators for again rewarding and recognizing deserving students. He said a unique aspect of the Stifel awards is that students are not often rewarded with cash for their achievements in the classroom. Saunders said the award and cash prizes are greatly appreciated by the recipients and their families.

Ohio County Schools are congratulating Stifel winners and highlighting them on social media. Stifel winners are encouraged to have their photo taken with their Stifel award certificate and forward it to [email protected] Photos will be posted on social media as they are received.

The Stifel Awards are named in honor of the late George E. Stifel, who endowed a trust for the encouragement of education in public schools. Stifel awards are given for academic achievement in the classroom and on standardized achievement tests. A student must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher, must be an Ohio County resident, and must be a US citizen to be eligible.

George E. Stifel was born in Wheeling in 1849. He owned and operated the Stifel department store in downtown Wheeling. He was known for his public service and philanthropy, and he was inducted into the Wheeling Hall of Fame in 1979. In 1926, Stifel established a dedicated endowment to fund his town’s children forever. He hoped that students would believe that a good education was “well worth the ambition, the patient work and the sacrifices it may require”.
