Congratulations to KHS Senior Madeline Krueger, recipient of the 2019 Starke County Community Foundation Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. Madeline is the daughter of Todd and Judi Ringle of Knox, and Ronald Krueger of Fox Lake, IL.

Since enrolling in the Knox Schools her third grade year, Madeline has participated in many extra-curricular activities. She is currently an officer of National Honor Society, Student Council, 4-H, and Jr. Leaders. Madeline is a ten-year 4-H member, four-year tennis player and Drama Club member, and a two-time HNAC math competitor.
