North Central awards $14,000 to local high school seniors
College is off to a good start for 10 area students. North Central is proud to provide $14,000 in college scholarships to local high school seniors.
Ryan Rough, pictured far left, a senior at Allen County-Scottsville High School, was awarded a $5,000 scholarship from the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) and NCTC. The FRS scholarship is awarded to high school seniors, like Rough, who are good students and who work to serve their community.
Nine local students were awarded $1,000 scholarships from NCTC. The students are (top photo, left to right): Jonathan Jones (Red Boiling Springs High School), Adam Cornwell (Trousdale County High School), Haylee Hodges (Portland High School), Jordan Durham (Gallatin High School), Hayley Andrews (Westmoreland High School), Sebastian Brawner (Macon County High School), Jessica Neal (Smith County High School), Heagan Caldwell (Clay County High School) and, not pictured, Quinn Towery (Allen County-Scottsville High School).
Additionally, Madison Medrano, who will be a senior at Red Boiling Springs High School this fall, represented North Central as part of the Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. Medrano received the trip, sponsored by FRS, for her winning essay on “Understanding Telephone Cooperatives Past, Present and Future.”
