Sara Spencer & Stan Hostler Award

Sara Spencer was a young 13 year old student and member of HSTA in Kanawha County.  She had completed her first State Science Symposium and was looking forward to the beginning of summer when she was tragically killed in 1998, while she was out with friends one evening.  Sara was taken from us too soon but we remember her as a charming young lady who was quick to smile and had a beautiful, gentle, soul.   She loved music, children, her family and friends. To honor her memory and kind spirit, HSTA awards a scholarship to competing seniors who submit essays.  This year’s winners are:
