Students receive prestigious award at the Statehouse 

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Don Lehe (R-Brookston) congratulates Mason Fisher, Lacey Hendress and Kaitlin Willbanks 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.

“Mason, Lacey and Kaitlin are the kind of students every school is proud to have,” said Rep. Lehe. “Their leadership qualities and academic success will help prepare them for a bright future.”

Beginning annually in 2000, Comcast has reached out to high school guidance counselors and principals to recognize the brightest seniors as the nation’s “leaders and achievers.” The award recipients are 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. Fisher, Hendress and Willbanks were three of 49 Hoosier students to receive the $1,000 award. 

“Most high school seniors take on a great deal of responsibility, but these students stand out as role models,” said Rep. Lehe. “Not only do they manage their classes, social obligations and community service opportunities, but they are also prepared for the next big step, whatever that may be. I have no doubt that they will succeed in any future endeavors they choose and I wish them all the best.” 

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