Pulaski County Community Foundation Announces 2013 Lilly Endowment Scholar


The Pulaski County Community Foundation has announced the recipient of their full-tuition, four-year Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship for 2013. David Putt, a Pulaski County student, will receive full tuition to his choice of Indiana college as well as a $900 yearly stipend for required books and equipment.

The son of Michael and Donna Putt from Francesville, Putt will graduate from West Central High School in June. Putt has been very involved in school activities such as Fellowship of Christian Athletes, FFA, Student Council, Business Professionals of America, Band, and Drama, and has enjoyed working as a farmhand assistant and volunteering at church, park clean-ups, landscaping projects, food pantries, and singing at the local nursing home. He has also received several honors and awards including the George Eastman Young Leaders award, the Mathematics Outstanding Achievement for Excellence award, and three Highest Class GPA awards.

He said his immediate educational plans are to study in the field of medicine, and he will be attending Purdue University to pursue a degree in pre-medicine. His dream is to be an emergency room physician at a hospital in one of Indiana’s metropolitan areas.

All Pulaski County high school seniors who will graduate with a diploma from an accredited Indiana high school and who have been accepted to pursue a full-time baccalaureate course of study at an Indiana school qualify for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. The PCCF Scholarship Selection Committee received several scholarship applications from Pulaski County students and the nominees were then submitted to Independent Colleges of Indiana for selection.
