Four Plainfield residents have been awarded Presidential Scholarships to attend North Central College in Naperville.

They are:

  • Ambrielle Barker, a graduate of Joliet Township High School West;
  • Lauren Kanady, a graduate of Plainfield East High School, majoring in radiation therapy;
  • Michael Maton, a graduate of Plainfield North High School, majoring physics;
  • Ann Nenoff, a graduate of Plainfield High School Central, majoring in political science.

The Presidential Scholarship is the top merit-based scholarship at North Central College and is offered to less than 15 percent of the incoming class. The scholarship is based on a combination of a student's high school grade-point average from core academic classes and ACT/SAT test scores and is renewable for up to four years.

Students can received up to $19,000 a year or $76,000 over four years, according to the school's Web site, northcentralcollege.edu/financial-aid/freshmen-scholarships.
