Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Randy Truitt (R-West Lafayette) congratulates Kelly Wilkins from Lafayette for receiving the 2013 Comcast Leaders & Achievers Scholarship today. The award recognizes high school seniors for their outstanding leadership skills, high academic performance and participation in community service projects.

“This reward that Kelly is receiving is very prestigious,” said Rep. Truitt. “It defines her as a student leader and as someone who gives back to our community. Our hard working students deserve to be recognized, and this scholarship is a great way to reward the hard work, academic achievement and selfless service of these students.”

Beginning annually in 2000, Comcast reaches out to high school guidance counselors and principals to recognize the brightest seniors as the nation’s “leaders and achievers.” The award recipients were nominated for their extensive involvement in their schools and participation in various service projects that positively impact their communities.

Since 2001, Comcast has awarded approximately $19 million in scholarship funds to more than 19,000 students across the nation. Kelly, who attends McCutcheon High School, was one of 49 Hoosier students to receive the $1,000 award.

“I am proud of the work and leadership Kelly has demonstrated,” said Rep. Truitt. “I know that she will continue to distinguish herself in whatever career path she chooses, and I wish her the best in her endeavors.”

The award was presented by First Lady Karen Pence at the Indiana Statehouse.
