(BEDFORD) - Madelyn Ueltschi, daughter of Ted and Trish Ueltschi, has been named the Lawrence County Community Foundation's 2014 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.
Ueltschi, from Springville, is a senior at Bedford North Lawrence High School.
The Lilly Scholar receives a full-tuition scholarship to a four-year Indiana public or private college or university, along with a $900 stipend for required books.
The 10 finalists completed an impromptu essay and were interviewed by the selection committee.
Two names (one recipient and one alternate) were submitted to the Independent Colleges of Indiana for final selection of the recipients. ICI is a non-profit corporation that represents 31 regionally accredited degree granting, non-profit, private colleges and universities in the state.
The Lilly scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education. There were 142 scholarships awarded statewide.
