Last year, Ariana Wilson of Minooka and Kevin Wendling of Morris were selected as the 2012 scholarship winners. Wilson and Wendling were chosen after a very difficult selection process from an exceptional group of more than 70 candidates.
They were each awarded $1,000 to be used to help with the costs associated with their education. Wilson is a graduate of Minooka Community High School and is presently enrolled at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, persuing her passion of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
Wendling is a graduate of Morris Community High School and is currently enrolled at St. Ambrose University in Iowa. He plans to pursue his doctorate degree in physical therapy.
Applications and guidelines for the scholarships are available at www.rezinortho.com. Completed applications must be received by July 30, 2013.
