The Village of Hennepin awarded the 2015 Adam and Ida Deck College Scholarships on Wednesday night.

During the village board meeting, Lauren Colby, daughter of Julie and Dane Colby, received the first-place, $1,200-per-year scholarship. Second place went to Kristen Pinn, daughter of Linda and Michael Pinn. She will receive $1,000 per year. The scholarship is for four years.

Colby and Pinn are the 89th and 90th students to receive the scholarship since its inception in 1974.

“How we score these, you kids were only a little bit apart, you should be very proud of yourselves and your accomplishments,” Mayor Kevin Coleman told the parents.

Congratulations to Lauren and Kristen!
