WARSAW — Warsaw Community High School senior Nicolas Luna was selected as a top full-tuition scholarship recipient in the Presidential Scholarships Day at Grace College.
Luna did not know that he won until he was surprised by family and Grace College and WCHS staff outside the Performing Arts Center. Sir Red, Grace College mascot, made a guest appearance to add to the celebration.
“Nicolas is such a special young man who has worked so hard,” said Mark Pohl, Grace College vice-president of enrollment management. “We are so proud of him and excited about his future.”
Grace College announced the two winners of the annual program earlier this week. The other recipient is Liz Murphy, of Huntertown.
Two hundred and ten student scholars competed in the event. Only two students were selected for full tuition.
“It is an honor to receive this opportunity,” said Luna.
