Fayetteville's Brianna Chick receives William R. Carter, Sr., Memorial Scholarship

Aug. 8, 2014

Brianna Alexandra Chick, a 2014 graduate of Lincoln County High School, has received the William R. Carter, Sr., Memorial Scholarship to attend Motlow College during the 2014-15 academic year. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior of LCHS for two consecutive semesters at Motlow.

Lincoln County High School graduate Brianna Chick, second from left, was recently awarded the William R. Carter, Sr., Memorial Scholarship from the Motlow College Foundation. Joining Brianna for the ceremony are, from left, Laura Monks, director of the Motlow College Fayetteville Center; Flo Carter Williams, owner of Cahoots in Fayetteville; and Jan Rogers, director of advancement at Motlow College.
The William R. Carter, Sr., Memorial Scholarship was started by the friends and children of Mr. Carter: William R. (Bill) Carter, Jr., owner of CFW, Inc. in Fayetteville; Flo Carter Williams, owner of Cahoots in Fayetteville; and Lex Carter of Knoxville.

"I cannot express my gratitude enough for your awarding this scholarship to me," said Ms. Chick upon learning she was the recipient. "You are giving me the opportunity to further my education and to better myself and my future."

Laure Monks, director of the Motlow College Fayetteville Center, expressed her gratitude to the friends and family of Carter, Sr., for their generosity in donating to the scholarship fund. According to Flo Williams, the fund grew from their father's love of education and pride at having a Motlow College campus in Lincoln County.

Upon her graduation from Motlow, Brianna plans to attend a four-year university and major in social work. During her high school tenure she was active in community projects and enjoys giving back by volunteering.

The Motlow College Foundation is a 501c3 organization that supports Motlow student needs. Anyone interested in donating to this or other scholarship funds at Motlow should contact Jan Rogers, director of advancement for the College, at 931-393-1692 or by email at jrogers@mscc.edu.
