 Diana Trautmann Earns Lilly Scholarship

April 2, 2008 - Two Henry County students have been named recipients of full, four-year scholarships as the Henry County Community Foundation 2008 Lilly Endowment Community Scholars.

Aprill Schelle and Diana Trautmann will receive full tuition to the Indiana college of their choice and an $800 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.

Schelle, daughter of Randy and Lorna Schelle and a senior at Tri Jr-Sr High School, will be attending IUPUI in Indianapolis majoring in either ultrasound technology or surgical x-ray technology. She is second in her class of 62 students.

Trautmann, daughter of Rick and Sandy Trautmann, is a senior at Knightstown High School where she is first in her class of 97 students. Trautmann plans to major in pre-veterinary medicine, but has not chosen which Indiana college she will be attending. She also serves as co-president of the TASC Youth Grants Committee for the Henry County Community Foundation which she has served on for the past five years. Both Schelle and Trautmann have been active in their National Honor Societies, have served on committees, been active in extracurricular activities and have many awards and honors.

Both girls were extremely excited upon learning they had received the Lilly scholarships. To be picked out of the group of seven nominees, they were both honored to be selected.

Thirty-one students applied for the Lilly scholarships through their school systems and each school sent their chosen application to the foundation where judges from outside the county were brought in to conduct interviews. The students were then rated by the judges and the two winners were chosen and submitted to Independent Colleges of Indiana, Inc. (ICI) for the selection of the recipients. ICI is a nonporfit corporation that represents 31 regionally accredited degree granting, nonprofit, privte colleges and universities in the state.

The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education. Indiana ranks among the lowest states in the percentage of residents over the age of 25 with a bachelors degree. There were 216 scholarships awarded statewide.
