The sixth annual Judy Wagner Knight Scholarship Walk-a-thon will be held on Saturday, April 27 at 10 a.m. The walk will be held at Wayne Hansard Park. In case of inclement weather, it will be moved to Alpha Baptist Church gym.
This event is sponsored each year by the Tennessee Fidelis Theta Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa, an International honorary sorority for women educators. It was established in 2007 to memorialize Judy Wagner Knight.
Judy was a speech pathologist and audiologist in the Morristown City and Hamblen County School Systems and an active member of Alpha Delta Kappa.
The fund enables a scholarship to support graduate students at East Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt University or the University of Tennessee pursuing degrees in communicative disorders. We were able to give two scholarships for the 2012-2013 school year with the money raised. Both scholarships were awarded to Anna McLain of Talbott.
Anyone wishing to contribute to the scholarship fund or interested in applying for a scholarship can call Martha Kaylor at 423-581-5244. The applications are due by July 15 for the 2013-2014 school year.
