Hannibal, MO- On Tuesday, January 3, Hannibal-LaGrange University’s vice president of Institutional Advancement, Steve Miller, presented Hannibal Regional Hospital’s 2012 New Year’s Baby a $2000 scholarship.

Audriana’s mother, Dakota Blackburn, was thrilled and very thankful for the various gifts that a number of local businesses had given her and Audriana. 
“Presenting the HRH New Year’s Baby with an HLGU scholarship has been a tradition for several years now. Awarding this special scholarship reminds us each year that the future of HLGU is bright. We look forward to seeing Audriana on campus in 18 years,” stated Miller.
