Lydia Starhia named scholarship recipient

Lydia Starhia (center) of LaSalle, a 2013 graduate of St. Bede Academy, is the recipient of the Rev. L. L. Henkel Scholarship, $2,000 award, presented by Heartland Bank & Trust Co, officers Michele King, retail manager Peru, and Shelley Giesen, asset management and trust services. Starhia will attend Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, majoring in chemistry and environmental sciences. Her future career plans are to pursue a law degree in environmental law. The Rev. L.L. Henkel established the scholarship trust in his will, with the goal of assisting “worthy students from LaSalle, Illinois” in obtaining their undergraduate degrees.
