The Lima Noon Sertoma Speech-Language Pathology Scholarship was established by Bowling Green State University and the Lima Noon Sertoma Club, a speech and hearing service organization, in order to provide support to graduate students in speech language pathology. The Lima Noon Sertoma Club has several Sponsorships dedicated to the mission of Service To Mankind (Sertoma).
Lima Noon Sertoma sponsors a 5-week Summer Speech program for children ages 3-18. A second project is the Sertoma Hearing Aid Recipient Program (SHARP ) which offers hearing aids to individuals that are financially unable to purchase them and are not eligible for other social programs. Lima Noon Sertoma established this scholarship in 2010 to support students who wish to pursue a career as a speech-language pathologist.
