Two Bryan College students have been selected to receive the SouthEast Bank Scholar award for the 2013-2014 academic year.  This scholarship will provide each student with $7,000 annually to offset the cost of tuition and assist in accomplishing academic and personal goals.

Along with Vice President Randy Wells, SouthEast Bank President Monty Montgomery said, “SouthEast Bank is proud to support Bryan College in awarding scholarships that help keep our future leaders right here in Tennessee.  We are a true community bank operated by local employees who live and work alongside the people we serve, and we are committed to using our resources to reinvest in our schools, organizations, and neighborhoods.  Through the SouthEast Bank Scholars program, we fulfill this mission by rewarding outstanding students who demonstrate a combination of academic excellence, community service, and financial need with the opportunity to reach their greatest potential through higher education.”

President Stephen Livesay commented that, “He wants to extend a very special thank you to SouthEast Bank and recognize the impact they are making on our community.  The Scholars Award given to Emily and Christopher makes it possible for these excellent students to continue their education and upon graduation contribute to the economic health of our community and state.  I applaud Monty Montgomery and Randy Wells for their vision with this Scholars program, and I appreciate their emphasis on free enterprise and investment in the future of our community.”

Recipients of the SouthEast Bank Scholars include a group of incoming students from Tennessee chosen by participating post-secondary institutions for their character and academic commitment.  In addition to meeting the minimum criteria of achieving a 3.25 high school grade point average or a 23 ACT score, students who are awarded this distinct honor have also demonstrated financial need and community involvement.
 
SouthEast Bank Scholars is a scholarship program designed to recognize and reward outstanding students seeking higher education in Tennessee. This program underwrites tuition expenses for qualified incoming freshmen at participating colleges and universities statewide. SouthEast Bank, with total assets in excess of $500 million, operates full service banking offices throughout the regions of East and Middle Tennessee.
