Four students at Bryan College were awarded as SouthEast Bank Scholars and received scholarships to help continue their education and make a difference in today’s world. The scholarships provide each student with $7,000 annually to offset the cost of tuition and assist in accomplishing academic and personal goals. 

“We appreciate the investment SouthEast Bank is making in our community through these students,” said Dr. Stephen Livesay, president of Bryan College. “It’s amazing to see what this bank is doing in the community, and that means so much to these students, who wouldn’t be able to come to Bryan otherwise.” 

Criteria for the SouthEast Bank Scholars program includes 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 must also have a demonstrated financial need and community involvement. 

The scholarship program is designed to recognize and reward outstanding students seeking higher education in Tennessee, underwriting 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. 

“SouthEast Bank is proud to support the local colleges in our area,” said Randy Wells, senior vice president at SouthEast Bank. “Bryan College has always been an important part of this community and the bank is excited to contribute to the success of the students. We consider this an investment in the future.”
