Submitted on October 17, 2017
The Woman’s Association of Georgetown College (WAG) began its 121st year by presenting scholarships to six deserving young ladies during the organization’s first meeting of the academic year.
Kelsi Drake Dunham, pictured center, a sophomore from Henderson, KY received the $1,500 Wilma Reed Memorial Scholarship awarded for the first time this year. She was congratulated by the late Mrs. Reed’s husband, Jack Reed, M.D., left, and Georgetown College President Dr. M. Dwaine Greene.
Ms. Dunham plans a triple major in sociology, business administration, and healthcare. She hopes to pursue a career in healthcare and believes strongly in community service and volunteerism. Her ultimate goal is to establish nationwide shelters to benefit homeless families.
Also receiving a $1,500 WAG scholarship for the first time was Landry Jung, a Corbin senior, who is currently studying abroad in South Africa. Scholarship awards were renewed for seniors Haley Carr, Cynthiana; Jordan Osborn, Prospect; Dorothy Shelton, Lexington; and Aston Trunnell, Owensboro.
WAG has been awarding monetary support annually since 1897 to women aspiring to receive their bachelor’s degrees from Georgetown College. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of need and academic merit. The WAG scholarship committee is chaired by Mrs. Winnie Bratcher, the College's registrar emeritus.
