Taylor receives full ride to SIUC

Vienna High School senior Kassidy Taylor reacts after learning she was selected to receive a full-ride scholarship to Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The surprise announcement was made Tuesday with her family present for the presentation made by SIUC Chancellor Austin Lane. Taylor was selected after participating in a youth leadership event at the university. VHS students have been working diligently to complete the common app and university-specific college applications throughout the fall. Taylor had already applied and been admitted to SIUC when the early scholarship announcement was made. “It is always exciting to hear about our students’ future career plans and watch as those plans are made and then put into action. I look forward to Kassidy’s announcement being one of many this year in Vienna,” said superintendent Joshua Stafford.
