For the third year, Knight Insurance Group and Westfield Agents Association have awarded a tuition scholarship to a Notre DameAcademy student. Chief Operations Officer, board member of the Westfield Agents Association, and 1985 Notre Dame Academy alumna Diane Keil-Hipp presented the check. “I am truly honored to be able to be a part of this annual award. This award is not fully academically based but more based on service and community involvement. We want to support those students who faithfully serve those in need around them,” she said. Notre Dame Academy incoming freshman Jessica Lehmkuhl received the $1,500 scholarship. Ms. Lehmkuhl is the third member of her family to attend NDA. Her mother, Karen Lehmkuhl, graduated in 1983 and her sister Emily graduated in 2014. “I feel honored to receive this scholarship and was so happy when my mom told me. I am also excited to start high school at NDA because my mom and sister always talk about their time there and how much they loved NDA.” Mrs. Keil-Hipp also had two daughters attend and graduate from the Academy: Nicole Roe, 2015 and Lauren Roe, 2016.
