SouthEast Bank Awards Scholarships To TWC Students

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

SouthEast Bank and Tennessee Wesleyan College announced that Kira Wade and Tucker Bass have been selected to receive the SouthEast Bank Scholar award for the 2013-2014 academic year. This scholarship will provide both Wade and Bass with $7,000 annually to offset the cost of tuition and assist them in accomplishing their academic and personal goals.

“SouthEast Bank is proud to support Tennessee Wesleyan College in awarding scholarships that help keep our future leaders right here in Tennessee,” said SouthEast Bank Regional President Tom Hughes.

A community bank operated by local employees who live and work alongside the people they serve, SouthEast Bank prides itself on being a community bank that uses its resources to reinvest in its schools, organizations, and neighborhoods.

“Through the SouthEast Bank Scholars program, we fulfill our mission to reinvest in the community 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,” said SouthEast Bank President Monty Montgomery.

Recipients of the SouthEast Bank Scholars include a prestigious group of incoming students from Tennessee chosen by participating post-secondary institutions for their exceptional 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.

Both Mr. Bass and Ms. Wade are appreciative of the financial assistance SouthEast Bank has offered them for their college educations.

“I am truly blessed and so thankful to SouthEast Bank for the scholarship they’ve awarded me,” said Mr. Bass, a TWC freshman majoring in sports management.

Ms. Wade feels that the scholarship assistance has changed her life. “I would like to thank SouthEast Bank for their generosity,” said Ms. Wade, a TWC sophomore majoring in elementary education. “Without this scholarship, I would not be able to attend Tennessee Wesleyan. They have truly changed my life and I am very grateful for this opportunity that they have given me.”
