FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Five area students are getting a free ride to college.
Sidney Armstrong of New Haven High School, Jefferson Hughes of Carroll High School, Julia Jorgensen of Snider High School, Alexander Summers of East Allen University, and Mario Vilegas-Gonzalez of Bishop Dwenger High School were all awarded the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.
