Congratulations to Jack DeGroot - Pulaski County's 2017 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar!
Jack will be graduating from Winamac Community High School in May of 2017 and pursuing a degree in the medical field.
2013 marked the 15th year of Pulaski County Lilly Scholars! Watch our video telling where they are now.
The purpose of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program is to help raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana and to leverage further the ability of Indiana's community foundations to enhance the quality of life of the state's residents.
The program is open to all Indiana residents who will graduate by the end of June from a regionally accredited Indiana high school, and who intends to pursue a full-time baccalaureate course of study.
The Endowment hopes this program will encourage many of Indiana's most talented students to attend one of the state's fine higher education institutions and after graduation consider pursuing occupations in Indiana.
