Officials honored 111 Tennessee Scholar Graduates from each of the high schools in Roane County. These students went above and beyond the requirements to graduate from high school by achieving more rigorous academic requirements, volunteering for community service, meeting discipline standards, and maintain 95% or higher school attendance.
As in past years, Roane State Community College (RSCC) presented five $500 scholarships, one for each of the Roane County high schools, that are to be used by the recipients when enrolled for classes at RSCC this fall. The winners are: Kendra Qualls from Harriman High School, Sarah Collins from Midway High School, Landon White from Oliver Springs High School, Nathan Pearson from Roane County High School and Eli Everhart from Rockwood High School.
Additionally, five students were each awarded a $200 Tennessee Scholar Scholarship. The scholarship recipients are: Alexia Bishop, Riley Brown, Faith Riggs, Lucas Robinson, and Zack Staggs. The scholarships may be used for continuing education and career/work expenses. All of the Tennessee Scholar Graduates had an equal chance of being awarded this scholarship. The scholarships were made possible through a grant from the Roane County United Way.
