Emily Wampler named “Realizing the Dream” recipient

BLOOMINGTON – Congratulations to Emily Wampler, a 2019 graduate from Bloomington High School North and a Trine University elementary education/special education major for being one of 30 students named as “Realizing the Dream” recipient by the Independent Colleges of Indiana.

Made possible by the Lilly Endowment Inc, the scholarship program annually recognizes first-generation college students for outstanding achievement during their freshman year as they successfully advance toward completing their bachelor’s degree. 

Wampler honored Michelle Klawans, her math teacher at Bloomington High School North. 

Wampler said, Klawans “pushed me to be a better person and student every day” and inspired her to pursue teaching as a career.
