HCCF announces Lilly scholars

The Hendricks County Community Foundation awarded the 2014 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship to three Hendricks County students.

Sarah Copeland of Plainfield High School, Emma Hine of Plainfield High School and Lauren Mardis of Tri-West High School will receive full tuition to the Indiana college of their choice and an $900 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.

They were each awarded the prestigious scholarship based on community service, academic achievement and leadership skills.

Copeland, daughter of Dale and Jackie Copeland, is active in swimming both competitively and as an instructor, as well as lifeguarding. She also volunteers with Freedom Chairs. She plans to attend Indiana State University to study nursing.

Hine, the daughter of Andrew and Tiffany Hine, is active in FCA, Belles et Beaux Mixed Show Choir and the Femmes Fatales Women’s Show Choir. She is also active at Ben Davis Christian Church. She plans to attend Taylor University to study biology/pre-medicine.

Lauren Mardis, daughter of James and Julie Mardis, is active in soccer and student council. She is also active in Pittsboro United Methodist Church. She plans to attend IU-Bloomington to study business.

The HCCF received 130 scholarship applications from Hendricks County students. After the applications were reviewed, seven students were chosen to be interviewed. Finalists were Austin Decker of Cascade High School, Timothy Gruenhagen of Bethesda Christian School, Hannah Marsh of Plainfield High School, Kayla Miller of Brownsburg High School, Richard Perry of Tri-West High School, Jessica Schonegg of Cascade High School, and Jared Smith of Danville Community High School.

The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education as Indiana ranks among the lowest states in the percentage of residents over the age of 25 with a bachelor’s degree.
