Going into the senior awards ceremony on Tuesday night, Kelly Hill thought she had little to no chance of winning a $20,000 college scholarship.
Each year at ceremony, the winner of the year's Pflughaupt scholarship is announced. Hill, along with five other Shelby County High School seniors, was a finalist for the scholarship. Much to Hill's surprise and delight, she was named the winner of the scholarship. Hill, who plans to attend Miami (Ohio) University next year, will receive $5,000 a year for her college education.
