Thanks to the vision and generosity of Ron Lykins and his late wife, Ruth, and with contributions from many Jefferson Alumni members or their families, twelve seniors were awarded $500 scholarships at the Jefferson Alumni in Blue Creek on May 25. Jefferson Alumni funded six scholarships; Ron Lykins funded the Dr. James P. and Suzanne Branham Scholarship; and the five Don & Flo Armstrong Memorial Scholarships were funded by Lykins and members of the Armstrong family.

A local Jefferson Alumni Scholarship recipient is Cody Remington. Remington is a graduate of Waverly High School where he was an award-winning athlete participating in basketball and track. He recently broke the school record in long jump by jumping 22’11’. Cody plans to attend the University of Kentucky to become a high school government/history teacher and also hopes to coach. He is the grandson of our Alumni Secretary/Treasurer Carol Breeden Daniel, ’67.

Since the inception of the scholarship program in 2003, there have been 107 scholarships awarded at the Jefferson Alumni. These scholarships have been made possible by the continuing generosity of many alumni members and their families. The Jefferson Alumni Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit and contributions may be a charitable tax deduction.
