46 gain RSRF scholarships

Rising Sun Regional Foundation officials have awarded $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.

All students who maintained a six-semester grade point average of 2.75 or higher and plan to attend postsecondary educational institutions were eligible to apply. 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 of these scholarships were drawn at random at each school from the pool of applications that were submitted to the RSRF with official transcripts.

Recipients and their school corporations: Emily Helvie, Nicole Hountz, Anna Meer, Elizabeth Moeller, Andrew Nolan, Ashley Perkins and Jessica Wagner, Batesville; Trey Bradshaw, Nichole Brown, Liddy Crum, Erin Flint, Ashley Hammond and Paige Simon, Jac-Cen-Del; Ashley Ahaus, Brittany Egbert, Katelyn Huffman, Brandon Konradi, William Meyer and Maria Voss, Milan; Alexandra Bostic, Alex Bruce, Halee Ludwick, Beth Markland, Miles Morris and Justin White, Rising Sun-Ohio County; Logan Berry, Elbert (Trey) Grubbs, Rae Luhrsen, Maura Manor, Cody Meyer and Morgan Mosley, South Dearborn; Jacob Boles, Natalie Brinson, Cody Federmann, Jacob Pinkerton, John Trowbridge, Emily Webster and Levi Yocum, South Ripley; Bret Dwenger, Isaac Gorman, Maria Gregg and Carlos Pantoja, Sunman-Dearborn.

Private school and homeschooled recipients are Chelsea Mayborg, J.J. Mortenson, Joshua Smith and Veronica Stahl.

The Rising Sun Regional Foundation was created in 1994 by the city of Rising Sun in conjunction with the development of the Grand Victoria Casino and Resort by Hyatt Corp. The foundation began its grantmaking program in 1997. It is now 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.
