WEST TERRE HAUTE -- Brazil resident Beth Allard was recently named the recipient of the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) and WTHI-TV Top Ten on Ten $20,000 renewable scholarship.

According to information provided by the college, Allard plans to study music therapy at SMWC in the fall.

As a homeschooled student, she is involved in many aspects of music. She plays piano, viola, studied voice for three years and participates in several church choirs.

Allard, earning honor roll status, had several leadership roles in school as well as in the community. She said she believe valiance, vision and virtue are three defining characteristics of a strong leader.

"I must develop these disciplines in my own life as I strive to take my place as an effective influence in the world," Allard said.

When asked how she felt about being the scholarship recipient, Allard said, "I was speechless! It is a humbling honor to be given such an opportunity."

"Without this award, I wouldn't have the possibility of attending an amazing place like SMWC. God has really blessed me and I am very thankful for this gift. The Woods cares about its students and it shows."

"With her commitment to academics, Beth will be a great addition to The Woods," SMWC Director of Undergraduate Admission Aaron Kelly said.

Throughout the academic year, SMWC and WTHI-TV awarded the Top Ten on 10 scholarship awards to 10 female high schools seniors in the WTHI viewing area. The awards recognized female students with strong academic backgrounds, demonstrated leadership skills and a commitment to community service. In addition to the 10 scholarship award winners named throughout the year, two students may be selected to receive $20,000 renewable SMWC scholarships.
