Three awarded J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship

July 28, 2017 – Three LaRue County graduates were awarded the J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship to continue their education.

Andrew Coy, son of Marvin and Glenda Coy; Derek Goode, son of Gary and Melissa Goode; and Jordan Bradley, daughter of Terry Bradley and Deena London have been awarded the J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship by Central Kentucky Community Foundation. Coy plans to continue his education at Campbellsville University, Goode at Asbury University, and Bradley at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

The J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship was established by Nancy Handley Goodin at her death in 2007, to honor her aunt and uncle, J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards. This $2,000 per year renewable scholarship is offered each year to LaRue County High School graduating seniors pursuing a degree in education.

“It is rewarding to help our donors invest in students through our scholarship program, Scholarship Central,” said Davette B. Swiney, President and CEO of CKCF. “Their commitment to future generations and the importance of education is truly something that makes our community special. It is an honor to support students from across our region as they pursue their educational and life goals.”

The J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship is one of 98 scholarships being awarded by CKCF this year through Scholarship Central. The scholarships total nearly $115,000 and were awarded to 81 students from eight high schools and two colleges in the region.
