46 scholarships awarded

The Rising Sun Regional Foundation has awarded a total of $46,000 in scholarship grants to 46 graduating seniors who reside in Ohio and Ripley counties and the city of Aurora, the foundation’s southeastern Indiana grantmaking region. Each student has received a $1,000 scholarship award.

RSRF scholarship recipients and their school corporations: Payton Charlton, Amanda Garcia, Leo Giesey, Andrew Grossman, Whitney Lambert, Benjamin Meer, Deepan Saravanan, and Nicholas Vodzak, Batesville; Dustin Gindling, Katherine Hartman, Edward Oehlman, Devin Richter, Miranda Richter and Kristen Weber, East Central; Alexis Bushhorn, Jillian Gehl, Deanna Gunter, Emily Gunter, Lindsey Sutton and Austin Wagner, Jac-Cen-Del; Sara Sellers, Milan; Sidney Barkley, Sydney Elliott, Alexandria Koons, Sebastian Mathis, Taylor Mullen, Cody Weaver and Cayla Yocum, Rising Sun-Ohio County; Hannah Ascherman, Kayla Barrett, Jessica Benton, Megan Neuendorf, Lorieanne Rinehart and Tara West, South Dearborn; and Garrett Adkinson, Kristen Bailey, John Boyken, Hayley Fossett, Ryan Lengerich, Kendall Miller, Trenton Moorhead and Samantha Wilhoit, South Ripley.

Other recipients were Rachel Billingsley, Sarah Billingsley and Hannah Teaney, Oldenburg Academy; and Melissa Mulford, Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics and Humanities.

All graduating seniors, who reside in the areas mentioned, who have maintained a six-semester grade-point average of 2.75 or higher and who plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution, were eligible to apply for these scholarship awards. The number of scholarships awarded was based on the respective senior class populations in the seven public high schools located in the foundation’s grantmaking region and the total number of applications received from those eligible students attending private/parochial secondary schools.

Winners were drawn at random at each school from the pool of applications which were submitted to the RSRF with official transcripts.

The foundation is funded by the Rising Star Casino Resort, owned by Full House Resorts Inc., which makes monthly contributions to the foundation based on a percentage of its adjusted gross revenue.
