Lily Scholar

April 18, 2013

When it was announced that Mike Hoeing had won the Lily Scholarship this year for Franklin County, it marked the third time in 5 years that Batesville High School had a Lily Scholar. Allen Meyers is finishing his first college degree this spring and will enter medical school this fall. Alex Dudley is finishing his second year of his Lily experience and Mike will start his first year this fall. All three young men were not only excellent students but were complete students. To be a Lily winner you must show to the panel that you can not only get A’s but must also show them that you are a well-rounded individual. That is why Lily Scholars are often not always the top student in a class but the top leader in that school. Mike is also a good athlete, a good example for others, and a go-getter outside the class room. I would not want to be the person who has to make the final decision on which of three students will get the 4-year scholarship. You have to decide which 4.0 student is slightly better than the other two candidates. The winner is usually that student who can sell his/her self the best. Mike had a rough go since his dad passed away at an early age and had to grow up quickly in a one-parent family. Kudos to his mom Donna and brother Brian for making the best of a hard knock start. Just another reason Mike is one in a long line of Lily Scholars who will one day “wow” the world with what they will accomplish. Mike plans to take his skills to the classroom and follow in his mom’s footsteps. Congratulations, Mike!
