The Lawrence County Chapter of Kappa Kappa Iota awarded five county students with scholarships this week.

From Lawrence County High School, Ivey-Blake Terry received $500 and Ty Hutto was awarded $250. Terry plans to attend the University of North Alabama following her high school graduation this week, and Hutto has said he is still undecided.

Bret Mason, an R.A. Hubbard graduate, received $500 and plans to attend Northwest Shoals Community College.

Josie King, a graduate from East Lawrence High School, was awarded $250 and plans to attend Tuskegee University.

The chapter also awarded UNA student Jenny Jett, a Lawrence native, $250 to continue her education next semester.

Kappa Kappa Iota is dedicated to promoting the advancement of education through its members and provides annual scholarships to Lawrence County seniors or college students who are alumni from a Lawrence County school.

KKI member Beverly Bentley said four other scholarship recipients would be announced later this week.
