Portage High School seniors Sarah Torres and Preetkiran Singh are two of 10 students selected in Northwest Indiana to receive the Posse Foundation Scholarship. This is a full-tuition scholarship to Purdue University West Lafayette.
The Posse Foundation identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential. The Foundation extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. These students were chosen to attend Purdue as part of a team of students from Gary, Hammond, Mishawaka, Michigan City, Portage and South Bend.
