Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Steve Braun (R-Zionsville) congratulates Allison E. Bates from Carmel 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.

“I extend a big congratulations to Brebeuf student Allison Bates on receiving this award,” said Rep. Braun. “She is clearly a student leader and is someone who gives back to her community. Leadership is a rare quality in individuals, and this scholarship is an excellent way to reward the hard work and achievements of students in our community.

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.  Allison, who attends Brebeuf Jesuit Prep School, was one of 49 Hoosier students to receive the $1,000 award.

“In today’s world, students have a lot going on between maintaining good grades, leading and being active in their schools and volunteering through community projects. This is a major accomplishment and deserves our highest praise. I am confident that Allison will continue her hard work and will distinguish herself in whatever career path she chooses. I wish her the best throughout all her endeavors,” said Rep. Braun.

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