Lily Jones

Lily Jones is a recipient of the 2020 Michele Barnhart Hires Scholarship.

This scholarship honors Michele Barnhart Hires, a 1966 graduate of Daleville High School. A popular fun-loving student, Michele was active in theatre and choir. Although she finished high school as a ā€œCā€ student, she was determined to earn a college degree. Michele did just that. She earned a degree in speech, drama, and communications from Pepperdine University. The Michele Barnhart Hires Scholarship is awarded to a graduate of Daleville Junior/Senior High School who plans to attend either a recognized Indiana post-high school educational facility (college, junior college, trade school, etc.) or Pepperdine University. Applicants must have a B or C grade point average.

Lily, daughter of David and Jamie Jones, plans to attend Ball State University to study journalism.
