LEXINGTON, Va. -- Alice Moore of Greencastle has received a Johnson Scholarship to attend Washington and Lee University.

Moore, a 2012 graduate of Greencastle High School, began classes at W&L in September. She was among 41 winners of the prestigious scholarships for 2012.

The Johnson Scholarship program was established in 2007 as a result of an historic $100 million gift to Washington and Lee. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, and candidates are chosen on the basis of exceptional academic and personal promise.

The scholarships provide at least tuition, room and board and allow students to graduate debt-free.

Moore won the scholarship in a competition against about 200 other finalists who participated in on-campus interviews last spring.

While at GHS, Moore was named an Indiana Academic All-Star and salutatorian of her senior class.

She is the daughter of Harriet and Kevin Moore.

The Johnson Scholarship is part of a program that includes a lecture and symposia series on topics in leadership, supports two professorships and awards grants to about 30 students to conduct off-campus research during the summer between their junior and senior years.

Washington and Lee University, the nation's ninth oldest institution of higher education, is among the nation's premier liberal arts colleges and universities.

Washington and Lee University provides a liberal arts education that develops students' capacity to think freely, critically, and humanely and to conduct themselves with honor, integrity, and civility. Graduates are prepared for life-long learning, personal achievement, responsible leadership, service to others, and engaged citizenship in a global and diverse society.
