Haley Stagen, daughter of Brian and Julie Stagen of Paxton, was presented the Virginia Graham Scholarship by Nancy Baird at the PBL Senior Academic Awards Night.
During her high school career Stagen was a four-year member of the volleyball team and participated in club volleyball for three years. She was also active in the school chorus, participating in the PBL Variety Show and the Chorus Classic.
Service and volunteerism has played a major role in Stagen’s life. As an active member of her church youth group, she has gone on mission trips the last two summers. She has also done service projects such as cleaning homes for the elderly, helping at nursing homes, and doing yard work for people. Big Brother/Big Sister mentoring, volunteering at the East Central Illinois Food Bank, and participating in the Multiple Sclerosis walk are all part of her service resume.
