JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – As part of a Litter grant program, two CCHS students received scholarships for welding art projects. Justin Sewell and Chance Farmer received the Recycled Welding Art Scholarship. Both of these “young and talented men” received $750 each. According to Keisha Howard, who is the county’s Litter Control Executive Assistant and grant coordinator, the scholarship was funded out of her TDOT Litter Grant Education funds.
“I was able to offer a scholarship to both high school students in our county. I wanted to award one $750 scholarship to each high school winner, JHS and CCHS. However, I only received four scholarship applicants all from CCHS,” Howard said.
The two CCHS scholarship winners plan to start in the Welding Program at TCAT of Jacksboro this fall.
