Scholarships were recently awarded to eight students to attend Jefferson Comm-unity and Technical College, Carrollton Campus. The award money, provided by the Carroll County Training Consortium, provides a scholarship to students graduating from high school in Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham, Owen and Trimble counties.


Applications were received from students in the five counties, making it a record year for the CCTC scholarship. Austin Barnes, Robert Cauble, Timothy Corley, Garrett Dameron, Austin Dixon, Brody Gosman, Ethan Merrill and Dylan Wesley were the recipients of the 2013 CCTC Scholarship.

The full tuition, renewable scholarships are for applicants to study in the high-demand fields of applied process technology or engineering and electronic technology at the Carrollton campus. Applicants were scored based on grade point average, attendance, community activities, honors, KEES money earned, demonstration of financial need and an essay.

The CCTC is made up of businesses and industries along the U.S. 42 corridor.
