2019 Nicholasville Rotary Scholarship Awards
Jessamine County high school seniors received college scholarships from the Nicholasville Rotary Club during a ceremony recently at the luncheon meeting at Central Bank. Award recipients were Leah Hatton and Brandon Childers of West Jessamine; Zachary Thornberry, Brenna Creekmore and Garand Fields of East Jessamine; Grace Combs of Lexington Christian Academy; and Oliver Sutherland, homeschool. In addition Thornberry received the Joe McMurtry Community Service Scholar award. Awards were based on student achievements inside and outside the classroom, as well as their embodiment of the Rotary “service above self” motto. Funds for the scholarship are raised through the Annual Rotary Pancake Breakfast and individual member donations. Over the last 20 years Nicholasville Rotary has distributed more than $120,000 toward education.
