The Wilson County Democratic Women recently awarded the Dorothy McAdoo Memorial Scholarship to Caitlin Glover, a graduating senior from Lebanon High School.
This year, the McAdoo Memorial Scholarship was awarded based upon essays written on the subject, "The Role of Women in the Political Process." Glover competed with entrants from across Wilson County.
This is the 16th year the Democratic Women have awarded a $500 scholarship in McAdoo's name. She was a long-time member of the Wilson County Democratic Women and served as the treasurer for many years. She also served on the executive committee for the Wilson County Democratic Party.
Glover plans to attend Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, where she will study English with the goal of becoming a college professor.
At LHS, Glover is the president of the National Society, a member of the Model UN and on the Quiz Bowl team. She is the daughter of Vicki and William Glover. Her father is a member of the Lebanon Police Department and serves on the Wilson County Commission. She also has a younger brother, Bryson.
The scholarship is one of several community outreach projects sponsored by the Democratic Women during the year, including book donations to all three Wilson County libraries, housewarming gift cards at each new Habitat for Humanity home, the Backpack Program in the Lebanon Special School District and donations to HomeSafe, the local women's shelter. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at Five Oaks Golf & Country Club.
