University of Evansville Announces CLD Scholarship Recipients

Posted: Wednesday, April 26, 2023

The Center for Leadership Development (CLD) scholarships' recipients have been announced by the University of Evansville (UE). Brinli Helms and Victoria Vance, two incoming freshmen from Indiana high schools, have received the CLD's full-tuition scholarships to attend UE.

The scholarship recipients must be an existing participant of the CLD prior to applying for the award and must carry a 3.0 grade point average. Helms and Vance were selected based on their academic achievements, leadership potential, and commitment to making a positive impact in their communities.

Helms will graduate from North Central High School in Indianapolis and plans to study Exercise Science, with a direct entry into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program.

Helms' recommendation letter noted that she is a leader. "She is simply a self-motivated individual who continually seeks ways to become her "best" self. And through that, she motivates and inspires others to seek the same for themselves."

Vance is from Fishers, Indiana, where she will graduate from Hamilton Southeastern High School. She is a direct entry nursing student who is passionate about women's health.

"I want to be a Changemaker in my local community," said Vance. "As someone that is deeply passionate and cares about women's reproductive rights and women's health overall, this is an area in which I would want to make a difference."

CLD has been empowering young leaders in several cities for many years, and these scholarships represent the continued commitment to providing access to leadership development opportunities for minority youth in Central Indiana, regardless of their background or financial means.
