Two local families won’t have to worry about the cost of tuition and books when they send their children off to college in a few months.

The Johnson County Community Foundation awarded two Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships to Mariah Smith, a senior at Center Grove High School, and Sam Hicks, a senior at Greenwood Community High School. The scholarships, which are awarded to two local students per year, pay for all tuition at an Indiana college of the student’s choice with a $900 annual stipend for books and class equipment.

The scholarships mean Hicks and Smith will have to pay for only room and board for four years at Purdue University and likely will graduate without student loans.
