Four LaPorte High School seniors were honored by LaPorte Service League at its June picnic meeting for their demonstrated commitment to community service and academic and artistic excellence.

Lefteri Fegaras was awarded the Jack Whitted Scholarship. Jack was a strong creative force behind the innovative Service League play sets for many years, and his wife Georgia was a longtime active member and actress onstage. This award commemorates Jack’s invaluable volunteer support.

The Frances M. Rumely Award of Excellence was presented to Madeleine Nunn. The late Frances Rumely, who was a Service League member and LaPorte first lady, is memorialized through the student exemplifying qualities of intellectual ability, leadership and distinguished service to school and community. The award is given annually to a LaPorte High School senior female who is in the top 10% of her class academically.

Christian Ferrara received the LaPorte Service League Scholarship, presented to an outstanding student pursuing an art-related field.

In addition, Grace Tarnow was awarded the Kitty Wolf Scholarship. Kitty Wolf has been an active LaPorte Service League member since 1957. She is an accomplished artist, has performed in countless Service League plays, and co-founded the “PoPEYE’s Poppin’ in the Park” Summer Concert series at Fox Park with her late husband, Bill. The winner of this award participates in the fine arts and plans to continue pursuing this goal in college.
