Once again this year, the Kosciusko Board of REALTORS® has extended its rich history of community involvement by awarding three outstanding seniors each a $1,000 scholarship. Including 2013, KBOR has awarded $60,000 in scholarships since 1993.
This scholarship is specifically designed to assist bright and motivated students to pay for their education expenses and help them live their dreams and achieve all their goals. REALTOR® members are proud to help build a better community through programs such as this.
KBOR received over 40 applications from students throughout Kosciusko County and the winners were chosen by members of KBOR’s Community Service/Scholarship Committee. The winners are:
Jenna Coy – Jenna is a spring graduate of Wawasee High School with plans to attend Purdue University striving for a degree in animal science with plans to become a veterinarian. She is the daughter of Allen and Sheryl Coy, Syracuse. Jenna was very active in extracurricular activities from cheerleading to Student Council to National Honor Society. Trish Miller, coordinator of Work-Based Learning for Wawasee High School, shared with the selection committee, “Jenna will be a wonderful asset on any college campus. She is very determined and has a goal-oriented mindset to pursue a career in veterinary science. Any scholarship she receives will be a good investment in the future of our society.”

In addition to her busy school curriculum, Brittany is also a youth leader at her church and counsels at summer camp. Angie Metcalf, assistant Children’s Ministry director of the North Webster Church of God, said this about Brittany: “One of Brittany’s greatest attributes is her ability to set a goal and achieve that goal through planning, hard work and perseverance. Once she starts something, she will see it to fruition.”
Miranda Moss – Miranda was the only 2013 Scholarship winner that is already attending college. This coming fall she will be a sophomore at Ball State University studying in the medical field.

Pam Schumm, science teacher at Wawasee High School ,wrote to the selection committee: “Miranda Moss has worked very hard her entire high school career to earn good grades, be active and enthusiastic. The word ‘failure’ does not exist in her vocabulary. There is no better candidate for your scholarship than Miranda Moss.” Miranda is the daughter of Rebecca Moss of Milford, and Raymond Moss, Olathe, Kan.
