"Inspiring a community to become a better place" was the theme of this year's Lima Exchange Club's Youth of the Year Scholarship Program.

Twelve area seniors were awarded the honor and a $100 scholarship. The winners are Andrea White from Apollo Career Center, Rachel Inskeep from Bath High School, Tristan Moore from Delphos Jefferson High School, Alexis Deffenbaugh from Delphos St. John's High School, Lauren Bull from Elida High School, Nicholas Keller from Lima Central Catholic High School, Addison Wireman from Lima Senior High School, Amondre Knuckles from Perry High School, Alyssa Drexler from Shawnee High School, Trevor Osting from Spencerville High School, Alexandria Bayliff from Temple Christian High School. They each wrote an essay on how they believe a community can come together to make a difference.

Allen East High School's Leah Casey was picked as the overall winner. Her essay pointed out how it comes down to each of us making the choice to get involved to improve our community. Casey received an additional $500 scholarship and is eligible to compete for more scholarship money at the Exchange Club District Convention in May.

She plans to attend Case Western majoring in English and pre-law.
