Day School senior Brandon Foster selected as 2022 recipient of the Vanderburgh County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship

Evansville Day School is proud to announce Brandon Foster has been selected as one of the 2022 recipients of the Vanderburgh County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships. Lilly Endowment Community Scholars are known for their community involvement, academic achievement, character and leadership. 

“Vanderburgh County is fortunate to have many high achieving students. We received over 90 applications for this year’s scholarship. I’m always impressed with the quality of applicants and how many students in our area excel both academically and in their service to the community,” said Sidney Hardgrave, Regional Director of Community Engagement and Impact for the Vanderburgh Community Foundation.

Each Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship provides for full tuition, required fees and a special allocation of up to $900 per year for required books and equipment for four years of undergraduate study, on a full-time basis leading to a baccalaureate degree at any eligible Indiana public or private nonprofit college or university.

Brandon Foster is the son of Robert and Kimberly Foster. He is a senior at Evansville Day School and plans to study history and biochemistry and was recently admitted into the University of Notre Dame (his first choice university)!  His career goal is to become a physician. In addition to excelling academically, Brandon has been involved in a variety of school activities, including Student Council, speech, concert band, Venture Club and numerous sports. Outside of school, Brandon spends much of his time giving back to the community. He volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Salvation Army, and Youth Resources. Brandon also has a deep passion for Holocaust awareness. He volunteered with CANDLES Holocaust Museum and developed a Holocaust awareness curriculum for middle school students in Indiana.

Brandon’s stellar academic record and community service impressed the scholarship selection committee, but what really stood out to them, according to the presenting board member, was his “empathy for others.” Day School is proud of you Brandon.
