KOSCIUSKO — The Kosciusko Board of REALTORS is pleased to announce its 2018 scholarship winners.
From 1993 to date, KBOR has awarded $75,000 in scholarships. The KBOR scholarship is specifically designed to identify and encourage bright and motivated students in Kosciusko County. In assisting with their educational expenses, KBOR hopes to help these students achieve all of their continuing education goals.
REALTOR members are proud to help build a better community through programs such as this in hopes that these students make significant contributions in their chosen field. KBOR received applications from students throughout Kosciusko County and were chosen by members of KBOR’s Community Service/Scholarship Committee. Congratulations to our three outstanding Kosciusko County 2018 KBOR scholarship winners.
Bayly is the daughter of Jason and Kim Dobbins and is a repeat KBOR scholarship winner. She graduated from Warsaw Community High School in 2017 and just completed her freshman year at Grace College majoring in nursing. After graduation, she intends to find a job in a neonatal intensive care unit in addition to pursuing her Master’s program.
Among many of her extracurricular activities, she is involved with Sisters Mentoring with a Mission (SMM). She participated in the SMM program when she was young and is honored to be able to give back her time as one of the third grade leaders in the same program.
Alexis (Lexi) Hall
Alexis is graduating from Whitko High School. She will be attending Indiana University-Fort Wayne (IUFW) this fall, majoring in nursing. During her time at Whitko High School, she participated in softball, basketball, National Honor Society, Chamber Ensemble, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and volunteered at a local food bank, all while holding down a job and ranking 16th in her class. She is the daughter of Roland and Lena Hall.
“I love helping others and hope to be doing that as a registered nurse in the next five years,” said Hall.
In addition to her monetary scholarship, Tiffany is the second annual winner of “The Spirit of the Heart” award. This award honors REALTOR professionals who have been lost that touched their community throughout their lives. KBOR hopes to pass on their spirit of mission and purpose each year with this special award. One of those REALTORS was Kim Conrad, who lost her life in December 2016.
“Kim was my kindergarten teacher,” said Koble. “It is special to honor her and the many other REALTOR professionals who have passed away through being a recipient of this award. Your generosity inspires me to continue to give back to my community.”
Upon graduation from Wawasee High School, she will be attending Indiana University-Fort Wayne this fall, majoring in dental hygiene. She is the daughter of Todd and Deanna Koble, Syracuse.
