Seven area high school graduates and one TriStar Horizon employee have been selected to receive scholarship awards totaling $6,000 through the TriStar Horizon Volunteers Scholarship Program.
Recipients from Creek Wood High School include Anna Edmonson, James “JJ” Higgins, Chase Ingram, Hannah Lovell and Angelena Siebuhr.
Both Higgins and Ingram plan to attend Austin Peay State University and pursue a career in radiology. Lovell also plans to attend Austin Peay and study nursing. Attending the University of Tennessee at Martin is Edmonson, who plans to pursue nursing, and Siebuhr, who wants to be a midwife.
Students receiving the scholarship from Dickson County High School are Keirsten Daniel and Keirstyn List. While Daniel plans to attend Nashville State and List plans to attend MTSU, both have plans to enter the field of nursing.
Salvador Bermudez, a TriStar Horizon nurse technician, will be entering the nursing program at the local Freed-Hardeman University.
“These students have worked so hard and we feel confident they will go on to make an impact on countless lives through the pursuit of a health care profession,” said Eloise Jones, chairman of the TriStar Horizon Volunteers Scholarship Committee. “We’re honored to provide these scholarships to such deserving individuals.”
