LIGONIER — West Noble High School is proud of the class of 2020, especially those seniors who received scholarships to continue their education at the college of their choice.

Due to the situation with COVID-19, this year’s senior scholarship recipients were recognized during a “virtual awards ceremony”, which was broadcasted on social media on May 11.

A link to view the awards video can be found on West Noble School Corporation’s website, westnoble.k12.in.us.

West Noble would like to thank all the individuals and organizations that have invested in its students through scholarships. Without the incredible generosity of the community, advanced education may have been out of reach for many West Noble students.
