Lucas, KY - Sept. 13, 2019 – Two Presidential Scholarships were awarded by Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) President Dr. Phil Neal at the Glasgow/Barren County Chamber Industry Appreciation Breakfast held Friday, September 13 at Barren River State Park.

Each year, SKYCTC awards the scholarship to a nursing student at the College’s Glasgow Health Campus and to an employee of the Glasgow/Barren County Industry of the Year.

These year’s scholarship recipients are Mark White of Nemak Industries in Glasgow and Glasgow Health Campus nursing student Kayla Miller.

Mark White is a Glasgow resident and has been employed with Nemak Industries for the past 21 years. His career has included positions in Tooling and Operations where he worked as a team leader and supervisor. He recently accepted a position in the maintenance department as a technician.  This is where he states he has found fulfillment and would like to remain in this role.  Earning a degree in Industrial Maintenance at SKYCTC, along with the experience and knowledge that he has gained over his years at Nemak, will enable Mark to reach his career goals.

Kayla Miller is a graduate of Barren County High School. She is a practical nursing student at the College’s Glasgow Health Campus and will graduate in May 2020. Her plans after graduation are to return to SKYCTC and enroll in the LPN to RN Bridge program to obtain her Registered Nursing Degree and then begin her nursing career.

Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College would like to congratulate Kayla and Mark for being selected as this year’s recipients of the Presidential Scholarship.
