OTC Students Selected for Bagwell Scholarship

OTC President Gail Thaxton (center) congratulated the 2009 recipients of the Bagwell Family Foundation Scholarship and wished them well in their nursing program. Amber Whitley (left), Amber Benton (right), and Millicent Newson (not pictured) were selected by the OTC Scholarship Committee to receive a $500 scholarship award made possible by Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Bagwell. Forsyth County business and civic leader Tommy Bagwell and his wife, Chantal, established a $500,000 Bagwell Family Scholarship endowment fund to provide scholarships for students attending technical colleges located near their family business locations. Scholarship recipients are chosen using several criteria including proximity to the company’s operation sites and academic success.

As a stipulation of the scholarship, all three of the 2009 recipients have pledged to give back to the college, over the course of their lifetime, an amount equal to what they have received. Thaxton would like to extend her appreciation to the Bagwells for their commitment to technical education and this community.
