Education

Waite senior Dakota Stevenson will be attending Tiffin University this fall on an E-Sports scholarship. 

Stevenson will play two varsity sports at Tiffin — the 6-foot-5, nearly 300 pound lineman will be on the football team and also on the new video gaming team.

Redefining what it means to be a student-athlete, TU announced they will join the world of digital athletics in video game competitions, also known as E-Sports, which has taken off on college campuses across the country.

"As the demand for E-Sports programs increase, Tiffin University is preparing to launch this cutting edge E-Sports collegiate program by fall semester 2017," said TU President Dr. Lillian Schumacher. "We have acquired land and have committed to the creation of a gaming arena — a stand-alone E-Sports complex. This complex will house a state-of-the-art E-Sports training room as well as a gaming lounge for all TU students to enjoy."

Kyle Myrice, a senior at Clay High School in Oregon, has won two state awards from the Ohio FFA Foundation.

Myrice, who has been involved in Agriculture Technologies since his freshman year, won first place in both State Aquarium Management and Nature Interpretation Career Development Events.

Meredith Wolfe, FFA advisor and Agriculture Technologies Teacher, said Career Development Events are the FFA’s version of competitions.

“There are 23 different events in the state that students can get involved in,” Wolfe said. “Students go to districts and then state events. Our teams in the two events went to districts in March and then to states in April in Columbus. The teams both took home second place and Myrice placed first in the state in both events.”
