At the recent annual tea hosted by the Oldham County Republican Women’s Club in Crestwood, a scholarship was awarded to Madeleine Ricks of Goshen. Ricks is a graduate of North Oldham High School and plans to attend Louisiana State University in the fall, and study marketing.

Ricks was a highly-competitive gymnast for 12 years, a cheerleader and ranked diver. She was a member of the Mustang Mentors, the National Honor Society and founder of the Republican Club at NOHS.

The Oldham County Republican Women’s Club has awarded a college scholarship for several years to a young woman and high school senior from Oldham County. 

Recently, they decided to name the scholarship in memory of the late Patricia “Pat” Osborne,  a long-time member of the club, active volunteer and a strong advocate for conservativism in government.

State Rep. David Osborne presented Ricks with a gold crucifix his mother, Pat, wore every day.
