The Roane County Chamber of Commerce and Roane County Schools has recognized 100 graduating seniors as Tennessee Scholars.

Tennessee Scholars is a four-year high school program. In 2021, the program requires students to complete a rigorous course of study, maintain an overall “C” average, have 95% or higher attendance, pass all end-of-course tests, have no out-of-school suspensions, and complete a minimum of sixty hours of community service.

Ten received Tennessee Scholar Scholarships, each worth $300, supporting their education and career goals. The ten include:

Sydney Brackett,  Roane County High School

Morgan Grigsby, Roane County High School

Kassie Jones, Rockwood High School

Alexia Lamb, Roane County High School

Kailey Mackie, Rockwood High School

Jordan Ross, Roane County High School

Harlea Shillings, Harriman High School

Olivia Tagliere, Rockwood High School

A grant from the Roane County United Way provided the funds for the ten scholarships.  The United Way’s support of the Tennessee Scholars program is a part of its education efforts which engage students and parents to increase their involvement in setting high educational goals and help them better understand the value of higher education.

Roane State Community College awarded $500 Tennessee Scholars scholarships, one for a Scholar from each of the five high schools, to attend Roane State in the fall. The scholarship recipients are:

Carmen Turner, Oliver Springs High School

Niral Patel, Roane County High School
