Noble REMC awards three scholarships

Posted on Jun 05 2021 in Noble REMC

The three recipients of Noble REMC scholarships for 2021 may be from different communities across our territory, but all three have one thing in common — their future in medicine.

Congratulations to the three local seniors who earned $1,000 scholarships from the co-op for their hard work at their school and in the community!

To be eligible, the recipients’ parents or guardians must be a member of Noble REMC. Candidates were judged anonymously based on grade point average, a short autobiography and letters of recommendation, as well as their involvement at school and in the community. 

Here are the scholarship winners:

  • Allison Baker from West Noble High School plans to attend Purdue University to earn a degree in health sciences pre-professional. This is the first step in her goal to become a neonatologist. Baker is the daughter of Greg and Kristina Baker of Ligonier.
  • Karly Kirkpatrick from East Noble High School will also be majoring in health science, but will attend Indiana University Kokomo. Her goal is to become a physical therapist and have her own practice. Kirkpatrick is the daughter of Adam and Tricia Kirkpatrick of Avilla.
  • Megan Sue Young from Churubusco Jr./Sr. High School will attend Manchester University to study chemistry or medical laboratory science. She plans to use that degree to test and help create vaccines and medications in a laboratory one day. Young is the daughter of Mark and Jackie Young of Churubusco.
