GREENCASTLE -- Emily Dean, who will be graduating from Greencastle High School, will receive a $1,500 scholarship from the Shelter Insurance Foundation. The award is sponsored and partially funded by local Shelter Agent Dustin Rumple.
The scholarship recipient may apply the $1,500 award toward tuition, fees, room and board for any course of study beginning the fall after high school graduation and leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university.
Dean was chosen on the basis of scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The selection was made by a committee of school officials and community leaders.
The $1,500 award will be paid directly to the school the Dean selects. She will receive a certificate from Dustin on behalf of the Shelter Foundation at tonight's GHS awards ceremony.
