Reno graduated from Tullahoma High School in 2011 with an honors diploma. She is currently employed as an assistant to the special education department with the Bedford County Board of Education. She credits her work in the school system to her decision to become a teacher.

"The way working with children touches your heart is indescribable," said Reno. "My dream is to spend my life encouraging and inspiring students for years to come. It is not only teaching curriculum, but equally important to making a difference in the lives of our future generations."

The ACE program is for adults over the age of 23 who are seeking to earn a degree in a team-oriented environment. ACE provides a cohort-based "fast-track" completion plan for busy adults and working parents. ACE students can complete a general studies degree within 24 months and can easily transfer to a four-year institution.

The Motlow College Foundation is a 501c3. Anyone wishing to donate to the ACE scholarship should contact Jan Rogers, director of advancement, at or 931-393-1692.
