Steuben County Community Foundation • Angola, IN

By: Sheila McCrea

The six 2018 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar finalists have been selected by the Steuben County Community Foundation (SCCF). After reviewing 25 highly competitive applications from the 4 schools serving Steuben County, the committee named six finalists to continue with the four-step selection process.

Sarah Brandt, Thayne Camp, Elizabeth German, Karlie Hutchins, Regan Peppler and Sydney Rathburn met on October 10 to complete phase two which included an interview success workshop and an impromptu essay. The final step for these young community leaders will include an interview with the selection committee, and a presentation of their personal portfolio.

Angola High School senior Sarah Brandt plans to attend Ball State University to study Nursing. Fremont High School senior Thayne Camp plans to attend Goshen College to study Pre-med. Prairie Heights High School senior Elizabeth German plans to attend Purdue University to study Agricultural Economics. Angola High School senior Karlie Hutchins plans to attend Butler University to study Biochemistry. Angola High School senior Regan Peppler plans to attend Indiana University Bloomington to study Elementary Education and Special Education. Prairie Heights High School senior Sydney Rathburn is undecided on her college/university choice, but plans to study Finance.

The Lilly Scholar recipient will be announced in December after the recommended candidate is approved by the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). SCCF awards a $1,000 Circle of Friends scholarship to the other five finalists.
