Douglas to receive IU’s Kate Hevner Mueller Award


By Julia Plant



Laura Douglas, a 2010 Zionsville Community High School graduate, will receive the Kate Hevner Mueller Award at the Indiana University Outstanding Seniors Awards Brunch on April 6. Douglas is a Political Science Major at Indiana University in Bloomington, with minors in economics and French. She is expected to attend Stanford Law School after graduating from IU.

Leigh Ann Douglas, Laura Douglas’ mother, stated in an email, “Her education at Zionsville Community Schools was spectacular and has been a huge factor in her success.”

According to Laura, the two people who had the biggest influence on her career path were ZCHS teachers Dave Rodgers and Mary Grabianowski.

“What sets her apart from most is her inquisitiveness and her kindness. She has the mind and the heart to make a real difference in the world,” Rodgers said.

The Kate Hevner Mueller Award was established this year at IU and honors seniors who have proven leadership skills on campus; both inside and outside out of the classroom.

“She could’ve done anything, but taking on the issues of the world was always important to her,” Rodgers said.
