Kristin Witham to receive scholarships


Kristin Witham will be awarded the Waddell and LIFE scholarships at Lakeland High School during an award event scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22.

She is the daughter of Earl and Verna Witham of LaGrange.

The Waddell Scholarship is an annual renewable scholarship available only to graduating Lakeland seniors through the LaGrange County Community Foundation. Created based upon the final wishes of LaGrange County resident Marjorie Waddell, selection for the award includes an interview by a committee of Lakeland teachers.

The LIFE Scholarship is awarded by the LaGrange County Community Foundation’s LIFE Youth Philanthropy Pod and recognizes individual local contributions by young people through positive community service. One LIFE Scholarship is offered per school in LaGrange County.

Also receiving LIFE scholarship this year are Westview graduating senior Nicholas Raber of Shipshewana and Prairie Heights graduating senior Dillon Henschen.
