Lilly Finalists Announced

The Decatur County Community Foundation recently announced the 2022 finalists for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.


Fifty-seven students began the competitive process in August by completing an online application. The selection process was completely anonymous. A community-represented finalist selection committee evaluated each applicant’s citizenship, leadership, and personal attitude as demonstrated through involvement in the community, school activities, and jobs that they have held. Students were also evaluated on academics. The top five scores from this first round of evaluations moved on to the finalist round. Those top scorers include: Christopher Gauck and Adam Mack from North Decatur High School; Savannah Bower and Allison Nobbe from South Decatur High School; and Jessica Williams from Greensburg Community High School.
