COLUMBUS, Ind. — Ernest Xi was in his car in the Columbus North High School parking lot, about to go in for weight training class in April, when he received a call on his cellphone that drastically affected his college choice.
The 2013 North graduate learned that he'd been selected for a full-ride Wells Scholarship to Indiana University, valued at $120,000 over four years.
Xi's selection marked the second year in a row that a Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. student earned the prized scholarship.
Adam Kruchten, a Columbus East graduate, was a 2012 recipient.
