The TN Scholars Ceremony was held on May 7th at Cumberland University. Tennessee Scholars, which was started in 2005, is a joint effort by the Chamber of Commerce and the business community of Wilson County, aimed to encourage Wilson County students to take more rigorous courses of study during their years in school.

The event brings all Wilson County High Schools together, public and private. This year, there was a total of 417 graduates amongst the 7 high schools, Friendship Christian School, Heritage Christian Academy, Lebanon High School, Mt. Juliet Christian Academy, Mt. Juliet High School, Watertown High School, and Wilson Central High School.

Upon the students’ arrivals, they were given tickets to be inserted into a drawing for scholarships that were provided by the Chamber’s Education Division, Old Hickory Credit Union, an anonymous donor, Paul Workman, who decided to add an unexpected scholarship during the program, and Genesco, whom have been continued sponsors for several years now.

Scholarship winners for this year were: Jon Whitener of McClain Christian Academy, Clay Cochran of Mount Juliet High School, Tyler Stanfield of Mount Juliet High School, Melissa Grant of Mount Juliet High School, Hannah Witt of Mount Juliet High School, Hannah Cater of Lebanon High School, Hannah McCluskey of Lebanon High School, Zane Potter of Lebanon High School, and Allison Gardner of Lebanon High School.

The winners are pictured above:

The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Cumberland University, Gardens on Main, Danny Hill, the guest speaker for the event, Mayors and City Councils, all School Principals and each sponsor again for the roles that they played in such an awesome event!
