Andrew Edmondson, Union County High School Class of 2021 Graduate, applied for every scholarship he found available, including one offered by the Union County Opry, and his efforts truly paid off. Edmondson received several scholarships to cover most of the expense of attending college in the Fall. When asked what the requirements are for receiving scholarships, he chuckled, “I don’t really remember, I just took one of every scholarship application available and followed the instructions! It’s not really that hard; it tells you exactly what to do, you just have to do it.”

Where There’s a Need, There’s a Lion!

It is a club composed of members of the community who embrace the motto “We Serve” in a variety of ways. Local Lions Club programs include vision conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and much more.
