(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Ivy Tech Community College offered walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the state on June 10th in an effort to help increase vaccination rates through partnerships with the US Department of Education and Walmart pharmacy.  Students, staff and community members that received a vaccine were entered to win a free laptop provided by the college. Winners in the laptop drawing were able to choose between a MacBook Air or Dell Latitude 3520.

Locally, for Ivy Tech Community College Lawrenceburg/Batesville, Madison Fentress was drawn as the winner of a MacBook Air.  Madison is a 2018 graduate of South Dearborn High School where she earned the Indiana College Core from Ivy Tech as a result of the dual credit and dual enrollment classes she took while in high school.  Madison attended Ivy Tech for one semester and then transferred to Mount St. Joseph University where she earned her B.A. in Biomedical Science in May 2021.  She is now looking to further her studies to become a Physician’s Assistant. 

“I don’t remember winning anything my entire life and I was actually getting ready to fix my laptop,” said Fentress. “I heard about the vaccine clinic and thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and get it”.
