FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Tincaps and Big Brothers Big Sisters honor a local high school senior.

Tonight they honored Amaya Williams.

She's one of twenty national rising start students program winners.

Williams was given a $500 college stipend.

The award honors high-achieving students involved in the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentorship program.

Williams says she was surprised and grateful for the scholarship.

"Either way, you know, scholarship or not I was going to try my hardest to, you know, get my education and make sure that I can move forward," Willams said. "But it's a huge help and it's a help that I'm very appreciative of."

Williams says she feels like being in Big Brothers Big Sisters has helped be prepared to make the next step to college.
