Eleni Monroe of Hilliard, Ohio, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $30,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. At UIS, she plans to major in chemistry with a focus in pre-medicine and play on the UIS Golf team.
