Hoeing wins Franklin County Lilly Scholarship

BATESVILLE — Batesville High School senior Michael Hoeing has been named the recipient of a full-tuition, four-year scholarship as the Franklin County Community Foundation 2013 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar, reports FCCF executive director Shelly Lunsford.

He is one of 142 statewide who will receive full tuition to the Indiana colleges of their choices and $900 yearly stipends for required books and equipment.

Two semifinalists will receive $500 scholarships from the FCCF operating budget: Megan Karbowski, a BHS student who is the daughter of Tom and Jessica Karbowski; and Ellen Young, a Franklin County High School student who is the daughter of John Young and Christine Young.

The Lilly Scholar is the son of Donna Hoeing, Batesville, and the late John Hoeing. The Kiwanis Student Leadership Academy member and Math Center tutor has participated on the varsity basketball, varsity football and varsity track and field teams. In the community, Hoeing has been involved with the Choices Program, The Waters of Batesville annual Christmas Party, Relay for Life and Hill-Rom Activity Day.   

“My future aspirations involve pursuing a career in the field of education,” said the St. Louis Parish member.  “Specifically, I will begin with my sights set on teaching mathematics at the junior high level. I have selected junior high because that is the age where kids are most vulnerable in choosing the types of lives they will lead. There is no greater venue in influencing generations to come than education.”

The trio were selected from 20 applications submitted from accredited high school seniors who live in Franklin County, according to Lunsford. “The students were interviewed by a volunteer scholarship selection committee. Committee members have been selected because they are perceived as well-respected and objective.” Scholarship selection committee members are not FCCF board or staff members.

After the selection committee narrowed the field, the semifinalists’ names were submitted to Independent Colleges of Indiana Inc. for selection of the recipient. The nonprofit corporation represents 31 regionally accredited degree granting, nonprofit, private state colleges and universities.

The scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education. Indiana ranks among the lowest states in the percentage of residents over 25 with bachelor’s degrees.

Lunsford notes, “The Franklin County Community Foundation is proud of every high school graduate in Franklin County.  Choosing a student to represent our community is a difficult process for the Lilly Scholarship Selection Committee.  

“The FCCF scholarship committee will be meeting soon to select the recipients of more than 45 additional scholarships the foundation awards – scholarships that are created and funded by Franklin County citizens.”
