It is already that special time of year as graduating seniors prepare to leave high school and begin a new chapter in their lives.  To help in their educational pursuits, the Gibbs Ruritan Club has once again awarded scholarships to four deserving young people.  The Ruritan scholarships are for $1,000 each and can be used at the college or university of the recipient’s choice.

The 2019 scholarship recipients are:  Daniel Tidwell, who will be attending The University of Tennessee; Sophie Jefferson, who will be attending Belmont University; Dylan Singleton, who will be attending East Tennessee State University; and Sarah Lynch, who will be attending The University of Tennessee.  Scholarships were presented by Ruritan Club Treasurer Richard Wright at the Gibbs High senior awards ceremony.

Congratulations to Daniel, Sophie, Dylan, and Sarah on their hard work and achievements!  What a special time in their lives!  Best of luck to them in their college careers as they continue studying in their chosen field, and may they find much joy and success in their life’s work.
