Jessica Humes Receives $1,500 Shelter Scholarship
Jessica Humes, a graduate of Scotland County R-I High School, Memphis, will receive a $1,500 scholarship from the Shelter Insurance Foundation. The award is sponsored and partially funded by local Shelter agent Dana Frederick.
The Scholarship recipient may apply the award toward tuition, fees, room and board for any course of study beginning the fall after high school graduation and leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university.
The recipient was chosen on the basis of scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character, and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The selection was made by a committee of school officials and community leaders.
The $1,500 will be paid directly to the school the winner selects. The student received a certificate from Frederick on behalf of the Shelter Foundation.
