TERRE HAUTE — Crawfordsville resident Gracie Chapman has been awarded the Hines Memorial Medal from Indiana State University for spring 2024.

Chapman is an elementary education major who will graduate with a 4.0 grade point average from Indiana State on May 11.

The Hines Memorial Medal is awarded to students who entered Indiana State University as first-time college freshmen and completed their bachelor’s degrees with the highest cumulative grade point average. This prestigious award is named after Linnaeus Hines, Indiana State’s fourth president, from 1921-1933, who served two terms as the Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction.
