Day Ketterer Business Scholarship Presented to Perry High School Senior

May 3, 2017 – The 2017 Day Ketterer Business Scholarship has been awarded to Stephen Kamph in recognition of his academic achievement and essay on the role the new federal government administration will have on the business community. The scholarship is a one-time award in the amount of $2,000, paid directly to the college of the recipient’s choice.

Day Ketterer presented its sixth annual scholarship to Kamph during the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards ceremony and dinner on May 2 at The Conference Center, Kent State University Stark.

Kamph, a senior at Perry High School, is the son of Darrell and Tamara Kamph of Navarre, Ohio. Kamph was chosen for the scholarship based on his winning essay. His essay was written in response to the prompt “The Reciprocal Relationship between Business and Government and its Effect on the Development of the United States.” Scholarship essay submissions were open to Stark County high school seniors, as well as students enrolled at a Stark County university or college.

In his essay, Kamph points out some examples of how the new administration intends to increase economic prosperity in the United States. “The new administration is trying to increase the American workforce through various means. First and foremost, the government intends to reward companies for bringing jobs back to America. One way to accomplish this goal is through tax rates.  Secondly, tougher trade enforcement will also help spark our economy.”

While still undecided as to the university he will attend in the 2017-2018 school year, Kamph says, “I plan to major in Business Administration and Accounting at a local university.”  He has already earned several college credits through Ohio’s College Credit Plus program, at Stark State Community College.

At Perry High School, Kamph is a member of The Business Professionals of America, Perry Service League, and the Spanish Club. He is also heavily involved in community and extracurricular activities such as, a Starks Park volunteer, an avid photographer and a volunteer pianist. Kamph has been honored for his excellence on many occasions, several of note are: Business Professionals of America, Region 8, 2nd Place in Financial Math and Analysis Concepts; Perry High School National Honor Society and Technical Honor Society; Scholastic Art Awards – Gold and Silver Key Winner; and Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition Winner. Kamph also runs his own small photography business, SK Photography.
