New Haven High School student Brianna Rhodes was rendered speechless today. She was an honored recipient of the coveted Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. She was given the news among her classmates, family, and mentors. Brianna intends to draw from life experiences to help her on her career path. It is her desire to study social work, and addictions counseling. She is excited to attend Indiana Wesleyan in the fall. Bri says, “I was really worried that college wasn’t going to be an option, this is such a blessing, I am overwhelmed.” This is New Haven High School’s second student in as many years to receive this prestigious award.
