The Lincoln County Livestock Association was a part of the annual Lincoln County High School FFA Awards Banquet held recently.

Association members cooked ribeyes, enjoyed a delicious meal and meeting and then awarded $750 scholarships to three very deserving and outstanding seniors. They were presented by the Association treasurer, Gary Corder. 

One of the scholarship recipients, Victoria Lynn Campbell, will be attending the University of Tennessee Knoxville, majoring in agribusiness.  She was 15th in her class with a 4.00 grade point average. She is the daughter of Tony and Rhonda Campbell. 

Zach Carter, another scholarship recipient, will be attending Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, majoring in mechanical engineering, leaning toward ag equipment. He was 10th in his class with a 4.00 GPA. He is the son of Brent and Dr. Margie Carter. 

Lawryn Bevels, the third scholarship recipient, will be attending UT Knoxville, where she will major in business law.  She was 43rd in her class with a 3.8 GPA. She is the daughter of Eric Bevels and Vickie Wade. 

Livestock Association representatives wished the students great success as they start this new chapter in their lives.
