CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A student at Clinton Prairie High School received a special gift Thursday night.
Kylie Rapp was surprised with a $25,000 scholarship from the Sallie Mae organization.
The organization selected Rapp because of her efforts in the classroom and beyond.
Rapp is a member of the 4-H Llama Club, where she found out about the scholarship. Elaine Brovont, the club's leader, nominated Rapp for the award.
Rapp says being a part of an elite group of students is a big deal for her.
"Being one and five is a big deal," Rapp said. "This is such a small county and a small school so then being chosen just out of the country and then being in a small school, it's definitely a big deal."
Rapp is one of five students from across the country to receive the scholarship.
She plans to major in education in college.
