COOKEVILLE-Carol Abney, of Celina, recently received the L.W. Legge Insurance Agency endowed scholarship from Tennessee Tech University’s (TTU) College of Business.

Abney, a graduate of Clay County High School and a junior studying accounting at TTU was one of more than 100 students to receive a scholarship from the College of Business this spring. The college distributed nearly $143,000 this spring to its top students.

“We are proud of this outstanding group of students,” said James Jordan-Wagner, dean of TTU’s College of Business. “We are also extremely pleased with the support we receive from businesses and alumni in supplying the private funds for scholarships. In these trying times, they have responded by increasing the amount that we could award this year.”

“These awards recognize our students’ achievements and help us to attract quality students to TTU.”
