Merritt Ferguson Waters ~ Treasurer
A resident of Avon Lake, Merritt is the principal of Horace Mann Elementary School in Lakewood. In 2014, she earned a Ph.D. in K-12 Educational Leadership from Kent State University. When asked about Fields of Learning, she explained, "I have enjoyed the game of football with Dad all my life, and I feel honored to be part of this scholarship effort. Writing about memorable experience provides an important opportunity for anyone--at any age--to reflect and grow. In turn, we grow each year by reading student essays and collaborating with each other to choose the winners." That's a Win-Win!
