Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Heath VanNatter (R-Kokomo) congratulates Mary Canady (Kokomo) and Tania Sotelo (Frankfort) for receiving the 2013 Comcast Leaders & Achievers Scholarship. The award recognizes high school seniors for their outstanding leadership skills, high academic performance and participation in community service projects.

“Mary and Tania truly stand out among their peers with their service inside and outside of the classroom,” said Rep. VanNatter. “I’d like to recognize their achievements and congratulate them on receiving the Leadership & Achievers Scholarship today.”

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. Canady, who attends Northwestern High School and Sotelo, who attends Frankfort Sr. High School, were two of 49 Hoosier students to receive the $1,000 award.

“Both of these young women have made a great impact through their attitudes of service and scholarship,” said Rep. VanNatter. “I know a bright and promising future lies ahead for Mary and Tania, and I wish all the best for these two very bright and talented young Hoosiers.”

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