If you were to ask, “What does Immanuel Lutheran School and Rhodes College have in common?”, the answer would be “Quite a lot.” Hollie Brown and Claire McElwain (both ILS Class of 2015) graduated from St. Benedict at Auburndale and will attend Rhodes College this fall. Hollie and Claire each received the Diehl Scholarship at Rhodes College. Allison Hancock, Kerry Love, and Mark Massey (each ILS Class of 2012), as well as David Jones and Logan Payne (both ILC Class of 2014), currently attend Rhodes College. Allison previously graduated from St. Agnes Academy and Kerry and Mark graduated from Christian Brothers High School.
