A Rockford student has been awarded the Jane Lyons Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship for young women who enjoy playing golf and are pursuing an undergraduate degree.

Caitlin Schoepfer, the 2018 scholarship recipient, is a senior at Rockford Lutheran High School and will attend Asbury College in Willmore, Kentucky.

Schoepfer has been playing golf since she was 9 years old, helping her team take home three conference titles, two regional titles, one section title, and a second and third place state trophy.

The scholarship was made possible by a $1.2 million donation by Jane Lyons, a golf enthusiast who played in the Women’s Classic Golf Championship for more than a60 years, to the Rockford Park District.
