It is a pleasure to be able to provide this support for them.”

“There are actually three of the $1,500 scholarships available each year, though only two were awarded this year. They are awarded based on an application process and demonstrated merit. We look forward to continuing this initiative and building and even stronger future for our profession as these students develop their careers in the coming years, here in Tennessee,” said Mr. Tucker.
