(UNDATED) - Salem High School senior Loralee Potter and Seymour High School senior Anna May Huff have been named Washington County's and Jackson County's 2018 Lilly Endowment Community Scholars.

As Lilly Scholars, they will receive a four-year, full-tuition scholarship to the Indiana college of their choice and a $900 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.

Potter is president of the Science Club, Art Club officer, member of Spanish Club, Science Olympiad competitor, Student Council member, multi-year member of the Homecoming Committee, and All-Conference and Regional Qualifier for the Golf team, as well as other activities.

Potter participates in several community service projects, such as serving as an officer for the Washington County Youth Foundation, assistant for the third Grade STEM Club, reader for the Happily Ever After Project, Relay for Life, Jump Start program, canned food drives, painting murals at the school, Christmas Assistance Program, volunteer at blood drives and was a key member in the plastic cap recycling program. She has been a Congressional Art Competition participant, attended the Lugar Symposium, paged for State Representative Steve Davisson, State Science Olympiad qualifier and has excelled in academics.

Huff is the daughter of Barry and Yoko Huff. She is unsure where she will attend college next fall but is considering a number of Indiana colleges and universities and plans to visit college campuses within the next few weeks.
