A Northfield High School graduate is one of five Hoosiers to have received a Minuteman Scholarship from the National Guard.

Drake Heitz received the scholarship on Wednesday, June 8, from Staff Sgt. Willie Justice of the Indiana National Guard. Heitz will use his scholarship to attend Rose Hulman Institute of Technology.

“Over the next for years, the Guard will pay $57,000 a year,” Justice told The Paper of Wabash County. “So he’s going to graduate not owing anything.”
