Currently there aresix Wilson County high school graduates receiving scholarship funds directly from tournament proceedsand other fund raising effortsto attend Cumberland University. That number will increase to nine students beginning with the fall term at CU.
The Sean Putman Scholarship was a great help for me while I pursued my degree at Cumberland. I really appreciated the scholarship funds I received and it really meant a lot since I personally knew Sean Putman and his family, commented Meleia Montgomery, a registered nurse now employed at University Medical Center in Lebanon.
A number of area studentshave benefited from the scholarship fund, and details of the scholarship are available on-line at www.cumberland.edu.Applications are being accepted, and the scholarship funds will be awarded this fall.
