Your Scholarship Donations Support Our Young People’s Dreams

Posted February 6, 2017

2016 Lilly Community Scholarship finalists received $1,000 scholarships and plan to study a range areas leading to fulfilling careers. From left, Kara Slusser (psychology and sports media), Kylie Keifer (animal science leading to a career as a veterinarian), Sara Carpenter (biology), and Punit Patel (biology leading to a career as a pediatrician).

You are a hero every day to local students beginning their college careers. Last year you allowed the Foundation to give out $70,000 to 53 graduating high school seniors so that they could begin their college and career training last August.

You gave out hope for the big dreams of these young people.

  • 13 planned to become nurses, physical therapists, dentists, and other healthcare professionals;
  • 12 proposed to study biochemistry, agriculture, veterinary science, wildlife conservation, and other life sciences
  • 16 prepared to go to vocational programs.

Let’s do that again. Contact our 2017 Blackford County graduates to let them know that their scholarship applications are due March 9. Applications and details are here…
