Lindsay was also honored as the state Kiwanis scholarship winner for this region.

Their grade point averages ranged from 4.71 to 5.0 on a 4.0 scale demonstrated on their collective transcripts, recording just under 300 grades with nothing lower than a B. Only 13 grades out of the 300 were a B with all of the remaining grades being an A. They have all earned many college credits while in high school as a result.

They will be attending five different universities: including Northwestern, Notre Dame, Purdue, Ball State, and IUPUI.

They are all in the top 10 in their graduating class. All five of these students were also very active in sports, art, served on the principal’s advisory committee, served as class officers and have also been employed at several retail establishments throughout the community. Kiwanis is very proud to be able to honor such outstanding young people.
