South Madison County - Madison County’s two Lilly Scholars happened to be from the South Madison area this year and met for the first time at The Times-Post office April 19.
Anna Dudley, 18, of Pendleton and Philip Horstmeyer, 18, of Lapel were recently chosen as the 2013 recipients of Lilly Scholarships, which provide four years of full tuition and required fees to attend the Indiana college of their choice, as well as a $900 annual stipend for required books and equipment.
The two, while coming from different homes and backgrounds, were both excited about being chosen.
“It’s not really hit me yet,” Dudley said. “It’s a really big honor, and I hope I do my best to make the money they give me worth it.”
