Twelve students from central Kentucky will receive one of Bluegrass Cellular’s annual $1,500 scholarships to provide funds for their upcoming college tuition.

In addition, a one-time scholarship was awarded to Brianna Meeks in memory of Shelby Goode, a former Bluegrass Cellular employee who passed away. The Bluegrass Cellular scholarship is now in its eighth year and is part of the company’s annual initiative to support local college-bound high school seniors.

“Every year it is great to see the number of students in our community taking the next step toward bettering their futures,” said Barry Nothstine, vice president of sales and marketing.

The local Bluegrass Cellular Scholarship recipients include: Lauren Barns, Logan County High School; Sophia Baumgarten, Bowling Green High School; and Matthew Thompson, Muhlenberg County High School.

Recipients were chosen based on their academic achievements, school and community involvement, scholarship essays, letters of recommendation and financial need.
