Emma Wells of Mt. Auburn, a senior at Taylorville High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2021 and awarded a $28,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. She plans to major in elementary education at UIS.

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

At Taylorville High School, she is a member of the National Honor Society and Key Club. She also played on the golf team.

Wells said she chose UIS because “it offers everything I want. The program is great for the career I want to go into.”

Following graduation from UIS, she plans to look for a permanent job in education and possibly earn her master’s degree.
