Staff report

The Sally Flowers Moody Educational Trust recently announced that from many applicants, six students have been selected as recipients of full scholarships for tuition as a result of the 2017-18 screening and interview process. This year’s recipients are Alaina Hallums, Skyler Hale, Jacob Haley, Garrett Wilhelm, Christopher Reeves and TaJada Hampton. All recipients attend or will shortly be attending the University of Kentucky or Western Kentucky University. They will be going into many varied fields of study.

The trust was established by the Last Will of the late Sally Flowers Moody to provide for full tuition assistance to applicants that have graduated or will graduate from either Logan County High School or Russellville High School and will attend either the University of Kentucky or Western Kentucky University.

Applicants were judged based on high school grades, ACT scores and personal interviews.

Successful recipients are required to meet continuing standards while attending their respective universities.

Sally Flowers Moody’s generous gift was founded on her belief that education is the key to advancement of society and that in any given situation, funds are best spent locally to empower local students desires of excellence.

Ms. Moody was an avid fan of both the University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University. She is also remembered for her preservation and commerce in rare, high-quality antiques.

The Sally Moody Educational Scholarship has given 74 scholarships since it was first established in 2006. Over $1.5 million in scholarships have been given out to date.
