Kelsie Burrows of Freeburg, a senior at Freeburg High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2020 and awarded a $20,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. At UIS, she plans to major in exercise science and play on the Prairie Stars softball team.

The scholarship is awarded based on GPA and ACT/SAT scores and can be renewed for a total of four years if the student maintains college GPA requirements.

At Freeburg High School, she played softball all four years and was a basketball manager her senior year. She was also a member of the National Honor Society.

“I chose UIS because I wanted to be close to home and have the opportunity to play softball,” she said.

Following graduation from UIS, she plans to attend an accredited physical therapy school.
