YOUTH LEADERSHIP BRENTWOOD AWARDS COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
BRENTWOOD, Tenn.—Youth Leadership Brentwood (YLB) program awarded college scholarships to three graduates during Williamson, Inc.’s business luncheon May 3 at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs.
The scholarship recipients are Rhea Jaisinghani and Hannah Williams, both seniors at Ravenwood High School, and Sam Christie, a Brentwood High School senior.
Jaisinghani will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall. Williams will attend the University of Alabama, and Christie will attend Miami University in Ohio.
Youth Leadership Brentwood is a leadership development program of the Williamson County Chamber Foundation (WCCF), the nonprofit affiliate of Williamson, Inc., for high school sophomores and juniors who live or go to school in Brentwood. Participants engage in daylong sessions that include teambuilding exercises, taking a guided bus tour about Brentwood’s history, meeting with government leaders, conducting a mock city commission hearing, getting career tips from business leaders, and learning about community service opportunities in the area.
Businesses and community groups generously support the WCCF leadership programs for adults and youth. This year, the student scholarships were supported by funds allocated through the YLB Steering Board, the Leadership Brentwood Alumni Association and parents of YLB alumni.
Applications for the Class of 2018 Youth Leadership Brentwood program will be available online in August at www.leadershipbrentwood.com. The program year for the 2018 class will kick off in October. For more information, contact Lynn Tucker, Foundation Director at [email protected]
