The Elizabethton Rotary Club presented the 2013 Rotary Scholarship Wednesday to an Elizabethton college student pursuing a career in nursing.
Amber Leonard, a 2012 graduate of Elizabethton High School, is attending the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in the practical nursing program. She was awarded the $500 Rotary scholarship for this year.
TCAT faculty member Sandy Barker presented Leonard with the scholarship.
“She is the best and the most-deserving recipient of this scholarship,” Barker said. “She is a great student. I am really proud of her.”
Rotary President Charlie Long praised the scholarship program.
