Tennessee Wesleyan and J103 partner to give away scholarship


For the second year in a row, Tennessee Wesleyan College and local radio station J103 have teamed up to award a scholarship to one deserving student.

“We’re very excited this year to give this scholarship to someone entering our Management Excellence, ME program,” said Stan Harrison, TWC vice president for enrollment services.

“Last year the scholarship was for a traditional student and this year we’ve made it for a non-traditional student enrolling in our ME evening program. It’s a degree completion program for students who have completed at least 60 hours of college work prior to coming to us. It takes about 15 months to complete, attending one or two night classes a week.”
