Current SouthEast Bank scholarship recipients and bank representatives gathered for a luncheon on Friday, Feb. 17 in celebration of the recipients and to kick off the upcoming academic year.
“We want to thank SouthEast Bank for their ongoing support of our students,” said Dr. Robert Dooley, Dean of the UTC College of Business. “Their Scholars program allows these excellent and deserving freshmen to pursue higher education and achieve career and personal success. We are so appreciative of SouthEast Bank’s investment in the future of our students and our communities.”
The SouthEast Bank scholarship program provides $5,000 each academic year per student and is renewable for three years beyond the initial award. The scholars who have received this award are a prestigious group of students from Tennessee who are selected based on their exceptional character and academic achievement. In addition to meeting the minimum criteria of achieving a 3.25 high school grade point average or a 23 ACT score, students who receive the scholarship also demonstrate financial need and a high level of community involvement.
