Emily Dean, daughter of Mike and Teresa Dean, and Graham Shuee, son of Bill and Polly Shuee, have received $1,300 scholarships from the scholarship board of the Grand Lodge of Indiana.
The Grand Lodge of Indiana Scholarship Board distributes earnings from an endowment, making it one of the largest fraternal scholarship funds in the country. Since its inception, the board has awarded over $6 million to more than 6,000 Hoosier students. Children and stepchildren of Master Masons who demonstrate academic merit, financial need and community participation may apply if they are attending an Indiana college or university.
Dean and Shuee were among nearly 500 applicants, of whom 328 were selected. Both students were represented by their fathers, who are members of Temple Lodge No. 47 in Greencastle. Dean will be a freshman at Purdue University, and Shuee will be a sophomore at Indiana University.
