Greenbrier chamber awards scholarships

The Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to two Greenbrier High School graduates.

Taylor Avery
A member of the National Honor Society, Taylor was highly recommended by her teachers, who describe her as hardworking, trustworthy and compassionate. She has been a member of many school clubs including Future Business Leaders of America, and has also competed for the varsity tennis team.   

Taylor has acquired many volunteer hours for the school, the chamber and Springhill Baptist Church. She is considering a major in engineering or accounting and plans to attend the University of Central Arkansas in the fall.

Michaela Roberts
Graduating with highest honors, Michaela has balanced educational and extracurricular activities well. She has been involved in many school clubs including Future Farmers of America and National Honor Society. She volunteered for causes including Special Olympics and Boys and Girls Club.

She also competed for the varsity tennis team (doubles). Michaela plans to attend Harding University, where she hopes to become a physical therapist with the goal of using those skills on medical mission trips.

The chamber scholarships were funded by the sale of advertising for the "Scramble for Scholarships" golf tournament held April 26 at Persimmon Ridge Golf Course.
