Lee High School graduate Madisyn Graves was awarded the 2022 Wilbert L. Brown Rising Star Scholarship.

“As a student preparing to attend Tennessee State University in the fall to major in nursing, receiving these scholarship funds will do much to further and sustain my educational experiences,” Graves said during the ceremony.

The scholarships are made possible from the foundation’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Celebration in January.

A spokesperson for the foundation expressed their gratitude to corporate donors, who supported the foundation throughout the pandemic.
