Meet the 2021 Scholarship Winners
Happy summer 2021 contributors to the Seth Mitchell Hero 5K. We hope your summer is going well. We are all blessed that it is going differently than last year! As always I want to keep you updated on how your investment in the scholarship campaigns are going. Due to Covid 19 we held the 5K virtually in 2020. You guys made the event fun and meaningful. We had over 100 participants and raised a significant amount of funds, even for a challenging year. Our scholarship committee thanks you. Each year we hope to raise enough to fund scholarships for deserving seniors from Loveland High School where Seth graduated in 1997. Because of you, we have been successful again. Let me introduce the recipients for 2021.
The Seth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship: Teri Clark (pictured on left above) has a keen interest in science and math. According to her application essay, her goal is to "treat my friends the same way Seth treated his friends, with kindness and loyalty". Teri said that she was humbled by the opportunity to apply for the scholarship in Seth's name. In our interview with Teri we found that she has overcome personal hardships that strengthened her and helped her find a passion to serve others by pursuing a career in the medical field.
Let Us Never Forget/Mitchell Family Scholarship: Madeline Schamel (pictured on right above) has used hard work, positivity and determination to overcome medical challenges during her high school years. One letter of reference said of Maddie, "while many teenagers facing those obstacles would choose flight, Maddie embraced the uncertainty and fights with poise and maturity beyond her years".
Like Seth, these young ladies are known for hard work, determination, selflessness, kindness and loyalty. We are proud to have them pursue their dreams with a financial boost from all of you that have contributed to the Hero 5k in honor of Seth's service and sacrifice.
Lastly, we do want to announce that the 12th Annual Cpt. Seth Mitchell Hero 5K will be held on October 16, 2021 at 11:00 AM in beautiful Nisbet Park, Loveland OH. We will offer a virtual run again too. You’ll be able to do your run/walk during the month of October from any location. The links above will open soon for registrations and donations.
Thank you all and blessings be upon you.

Know Seth Mitchell
Seth Mitchell, a captain and pilot in the United States Marine Corps and a 1997 Loveland High School graduate, was killed in action in Afghanistan in October 2009. Seth contributed greatly to the Loveland community in his youth… he served as a leader and role model on the varsity football team, was voted to be Class President his senior year, and was named “Mr. Personality” by his peers. He was well loved here. After graduating, he took that same sense of service and loyalty into all that he did: as a son, a brother, a friend, a leader in the Marines.
In other words, Seth was a hero for all.
We are a group of Seth Mitchell's high school classmates, who miss our friend and want to keep his memory alive. We represent the many people who Seth made an impression on with his sense of humor, kind heart, and loyal friendship. As we organize this 5k Race and the scholarship memorial fund, we are motivated by one enduring inspiration: to live each day a little more honorably, kindly, and humbly... just like Seth.
Please join us by donating, running, or volunteering - and keep Seth's memory alive.
HOW YOU CAN HELP

We accept donations of any size. Your gift goes to sponsoring annual scholarships to deserving Loveland High School graduates as they pursue next steps in life. It is our way of encouraging youth to serve like Seth.
Serve like Seth
Every day presents opportunities for each of us to serve the people around us in our lives. Seth answered that call in big and small ways in his life. We encourage all to live each day a little more honorably, kindly, and humbly... just like Seth.
