Mendon student named scholar athlete

Mendon High School senior Mary Leighton recently was named one the 32 Michigan High School Athletic Association Scholar Athletes.
She was honored as a recipient of the MHSAA’s Scholar-Athlete Award at the 2017 boys basketball finals at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing March 25.
Leighton, one of only four Class D recipients, will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Farm Bureau Insurance to be used this fall when she attends college at Indiana Tech University.
Farm Bureau Insurance awarded 32 scholarships, proportionately by school classification, to students with a 3.50 or higher grade-point average who have previously lettered in at least one sport in which postseason competition is sponsored by the MHSAA.
She is a former state champion and record holder in the 100 meter hurdles.
