Jarius Ingram

Jarius Ingram is the valedictorian of Warrensburg-Latham's Class of 2019 and earned the Millikin Presidential Scholarship, which covers the full cost of tuition.

WARRENSBURG, Ill. (WAND) -- Jarius Ingram was featured on the Friday Frenzy more than just about any other athlete in his three years starring for the Warrensburg-Latham basketball team.

But even his 23.7 points per game as a senior pale in comparison to the plucky left-handed guard's achievements off the court.

Ingram is one of a small handful of Presidential Scholarship winners at Millikin. It entitles him to free tuition as he pursues a pre-medical degree and hopes to work his way into medical school. He is also the valedictorian of the Warrensburg-Latham High Class of 2019.
