Ameriana is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2010 Paul W. Prior Scholarship winner is Whitney L. Rodeffer from Blue River Valley High School. Whitney will be attending Ball State University this fall pursuing a degree in Accounting. Her goal is to become a Certified Public Accountant. While in high school, a few of the organizations that she participated in were: National Honor Society (President); History Club (President); Student Council; Social Studies Academic Team; SADD; Business Professionals of America; Spanish Club; Model Legislature; Art Club; Choir - and the list goes on! She lettered in Basketball (Captain her senior year), golf, tennis and volleyball, and won numerous awards throughout her high school career. One of her teachers commented that "Whitney is a natural leader who is respected by her peers and a great role model for underclassmen."
The task of selecting a winner from the 26 outstanding scholarship applications that were submitted was difficult. Each of the students being considered had excellent academic records and were worthy of winning the scholarship.
