VanSkyock earns scholarship


TIFFIN — Connor VanSkyock, a senior at Versailles High School, is the recipient of a major scholarship to attend Heidelberg University.

VanSkyock, the son of Shaun and Amy VanSkyock of Versailles, has received the Fellows Award for four years. The award was announced following Heidelberg’s annual scholarship competition earlier this academic year.

Students who rank near the top of their high school class are invited to participate in the university’s annual scholarship competition. The program recognizes students based on high school grade-point average and ACT or SAT test scores. In addition to weighing a student’s academic credentials, the competition also looks at leadership skills and community service through a personal interview, a portfolio and an essay.

Founded in 1850, Heidelberg offers 34 majors, 35 minors and 10 pre-professional programs, awarding the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of music degrees, as well as master’s degrees in education, counseling, business administration and music. Heidelberg has been consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top college in the Midwest. For more information visit the web site at www.heidelberg.edu.
