Lydia Miller receives Loretta M. Burd Scholarship Award

August 16, 2015

The Smart Money Family Bike Ride started with the presentation of a Loretta M. Burd Scholarship Award to Lydia Miller.  Lydia was one of two adult winners.  Lydia lives in Nashville and drives to Sellersburg a couple of times a week to attend Ivy Tech Community College. Lydia is married with two sons and works full time at the Brown County YMCA.  Lydia will use her $1,000 award to earn a Physical Therapy Assistant degree. 

When accepting her award at the bike ride Lydia shared the following with fellow riders, “It is humbling to be an adult student.  I have much more focus and intent and I know what I enjoy.  I just finished my pre-requisites with a 4.0.  I have been accepted into the Ivy Tech PTA program for next fall.  Centra Foundation’s generous support and my hard work will get me started on this new journey.  Without the scholarship, it would be a much bigger burden. I am truly grateful for Centra Foundation’s help.”

We believe that Centra Foundation has made a sound investment in Lydia and her family’s future.   Loretta M. Burd Scholarship awards are made possible due to donations  from Centra members, employees and friends.   Thank you for joining with the foundation to make a difference in the lives of others in our community.
