Carlee Bell, Brazil, is one of the first three recipients of the John P. Newton Scholarship through the Indiana State University Alumni Association. Bell is the granddaughter of Maurice and Janice Modesitt. She is a 2010 graduate of Northview High School and will be a freshman this fall at Indiana State University.
The annual scholarship honors Newton's 35 years of service to the university and benefits children of alumni who enroll at ISU. Newton retired in 2009 as vice president for alumni affairs and constituent relations at the ISU Foundation.
The award is $500 for the fall 2010 semester.
