The Alpha Kappa Club provides educational scholarships to students attending Tennessee state supported colleges. At the present time, the club supports 10 recipients who are enrolled at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga and Knoxville, Middle Tennessee State University and Motlow State Community College.
The monies for the scholarships are funded through ticket sales from the yearly Alpha Kappa Home Tour that is held in conjunction with the Host of Christmas Past.
The newest scholarship recipient is Heidi Towry, the daughter of Wayne and Sonya Towry. Heidi is a senior at Lincoln County High School where she is active in numerous clubs. She will be graduating with an honors diploma and is currently attending Motlow State Community College in the dual enrollment program. Heidi plans to continue her studies at Motlow, majoring in nursing and transferring to Middle Tennessee State University to become a nurse anesthetist.
