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.
