Jernigan receives Pope Scholarship
Congratulations to Mandy Nicole Jernigan, recipient of this 2011 Brooke Pope Scholarship. This $500 award is named after the beautiful, kind, loving person that Brooke Pope was known as. The winner must exude musical competence, leadership discipline, and a great attitude, just as Brooke did. The applying seniors each year must complete a 4 page application and an essay; then, all applications are sent to Martin, Tenn. to be judged by a panel of three professors. Niki (Mandy Nicole) has participated in the band since the 6th grade, playing the flute and piccolo. She was also privileged to be section leader of the flutes for three years. Her future plans include: going to Union University and learning what God has planned for her future career. She feels extremely honored to receive the award named after her childhood friend. Anyone who would like to donate toward this newly created scholarship fund should feel free to contact the MCHS Band Director, Ryan Foret.
