Horizon Bank Slicer Branch Scholarship Awarded to Ava Allen

Michigan City, IN - Horizon Bank is pleased to announce that the 2023 Horizon Bank Slicer Branch Scholarship has been awarded to Ava Allen. A check in the amount of $1,000 was presented at the Senior Academic Awards Program held at the LaPorte High School Auditorium on April 24th.

Ava is very active in her academics, athletics, and regularly volunteers her time to a number of community service activities. Throughout her high school career she has participated in Kiwanis Key Club, Girls Reserves, is a member of the National Honor Society and has been involved with 4-H for over 10 years. Additionally, Ava was a member of the Varsity Swim team during her freshman and sophomore years, as well as French Club.

She wrote a thoughtful five hundred-word essay on the topic “Community Service Matters Because…” She eloquently expressed that community service has allowed her to open her eyes to a new understanding of herself and her community, while building relationships with individuals she would not have otherwise met.

Ava plans to attend Indiana University in the fall where she will major in Biochemistry for a pre-medical pathway.
