Northfield High School senior Faith Macy and her entire family received a very early, but well appreciated, Christmas present on Friday, Dec. 7.

Faith was named the 2019 recipient of the Lilly Endowment Scholarship for Wabash County. She received the honor from Julie Garber, who oversees the program for the Community Foundation of Wabash County, during a brief ceremony in an NHS conference room, surrounded by family and Northfield faculty members.

As a Lilly Scholar, Faith will receive a four-year full tuition scholarship to any accredited public or private college or university in Indiana. It also includes a $900 annual stipend for books and supplies.
Principal Todd Eltzroth pulled Faith out of her class to come to the ceremony.
