The inaugural Ingenuity Scholarship was presented to Sally Heil attending the University of Missouri and Carl Loida who will be attending the United States Air Force Academy. This endowed scholarship funded by a Valle Alumnus, uses merit based criteria for high school seniors pursuing degrees related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.
