Tiffany Beccue and Maria del Rocio Carrillo-Quijano were both awarded the Diane Seimer Scholarship. This is the third year that the two have earned the $2,500 scholarship.
The scholarship is awarded to Effingham General Equivalency Diploma Graduates who are furthering their education. The award was established by Diane Siemer’s family to honor her career in education.
Beccue will use the scholarship at Lake Land College to pursue a career in nursing and Carrillo-Quijano will also pursue nursing at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.
