Brenda A. Anderson, a Muskingum County native who embodied many of the qualities this scholarship hopes to reward, passed away in the summer of 2005, shortly after she earned a Master's degree from Kent State University. This young, idealistic, and courageous woman took her responsibilities as a citizen as seriously as her academic challenges. A West Muskingum High School alumnus, Brenda graduated from Kent State University Summa Cum Laude. She found time to actively support her belief in the individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution by never missing her chance to vote and by being involved in social causes.

The Muskingum County Democrat Club hopes to encourage the young adults in Muskingum County to be actively involved in our government.
