Rutherford County Schools
Blackman Club awarded two fortunate students with 750 scholarships on Sept. 6.
This year’s recipient from Blackman was Madison Childers, while Brianna Bawman was this year's recipient from Stewart's Creek.
Blackman Club President Tammy Sandlin presented the students with their scholarships at this month’s club meeting and potluck.
Childers is the daughter of Jacque and Scott Childers and is attending Middle Tennessee State University, where she is majoring in marketing. She also works at Old Fort Golf Course as a marshall for Bloomfield Links.
In her spare time, Childers is a mentor for Screaming Eagle Honor Flight volunteers.
Her greatest accomplishment was organizing, implementing and hosting two golf tournaments, which raised more than $10,000 to help Screaming Eagle Honor Flight. The Honor Flight organization sends World War II, Korean and Vietnam veterans to Washington, D.C., to see memorials erected in their honor.
Bawman is the daughter of Megan and Jason Jones.
She is also attending MTSU and majoring in mechatronics engineering. She is active in Girl Scouts and excited about the opportunities that come with attending college. Her greatest accomplishment is receiving her Girl Scout Gold Award for her project of rebuilding a local church preschool playground.
The $750 scholarships are used toward a university, college or technical school to further their education.
The Blackman Club will also consider those students who have completed a homeschool curriculum, seniors who attend Central Magnet School or a Christian-based schooling, who live in the Blackman community.
