Tennessee Wesleyan College teamed up with Star 102.1 and awarded one lucky winner a full $12,000 scholarship for the college’s Management Excellence Evening Program. The Star 102.1 ME Essay Scholarship Winner for the 2013-2014 academic year is Kimberly Napier from Sevierville, Tenn. Napier’s win was announced live on air at Star 102.1’s radio remote held in conjunction with TWC’s Knoxville Open House on November 15.

“Kimberly has one more thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season,” said Stefanie West, TWC director of admissions for the ME Evening Program. “The $12,000 scholarship she won pays the tuition for all of the required core courses for her Bachelor of Science degree that can be completed in 15 months by attending only one to two nights per week.”

Napier is an employee of Bonitz Flooring Group in Knoxville, Tenn., and was joined in her celebration by several winning finalists who received a $1,000 scholarship toward ME Degree emphasis courses. Those finalists were: Lydonna Burchfield, Tonya Breeden, Jeffrey Shipwash, Sandra Gotto, and Shannon Glenn.

“I’m extremely excited and pleased to have the opportunity to attend Tennessee Wesleyan College and I’m very grateful for the scholarship award which enables me to fulfill my educational goals,” said Napier.
