Banking on the Arts Scholarship Awarded

Two "Banking on the Arts" scholarships for students seeking their bachelor's degree in fine arts at Tennessee Tech were awarded to Saranak Askary (second from left) and Chance Stamps (third from right) as proceeds from the "Banking on the Arts" event held in April. The event, sponsored by several area banks, was an exhibition of art in the Darwin Mall. The money for the scholarship, which pays toward the students' college maintenance fees, was raised through ticket sales and entry fees for the April event.
