    An IPS student has received the elite Gates Millennium Scholarship, which gives her a full ride all the way through a doctoral degree. She is one of only 1,000 ...students in the U.S. to receive the honor this year. "Like" for this Hoosier young lady's amazing opportunity!

    Good deal, thanks for posting ... Here's some background on the high school:


    Originally built in 1886 in the town of Broad Ripple, the school started with seven students. The campus was destroyed by fire near the start of the 20th century but was rebuilt. In 1923, the school joined the Indianapolis Public Schools when the town of Broad Ripple was annexed intoIndianapolis. Through the 1930s and 1940s, the school continued to grow. In 1961, the school became a haven for high school education in Indianapolis. Once a predominantly white, middle class school, and the last high school in the Indianapolis Public Schools to integrate, Broad Ripple gradually integrated in the 1950s and the first class to graduate African Americans was 1953.
