Senior Michael Bender recently won the Lilly scholarship. With this news we asked him a few questions about his experience and advice.

Q: What was your immediate reaction when you won?

A: I was speechless, I didn’t know what to do. I had always thought of winning,  and it was surreal to me that I won.


Q: Future Plans?:

A: I want to attend Purdue University and major in Professional Flight Technology.


Q: Any advice for underclassmen?:

A: My advice is to work hard all the time. I know it’s difficult, but by doing this it shows people who you really are. Also, be yourself don’t try to be someone you’re not. You will get much further in life if you differentiate yourself from your peers.


Congratulations Micheal and good luck.
