Cummins named Green Scholar

-A A +A

Taylor Cummins of Owen County High School has been named a State Sen. Jeff Green Scholar. Students earn this designation by achieving a 4.0 grade point average all four years of high school and scoring at least a 28 composite on the ACT.
Cummins has also earned $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship awards. The award may be renewed each year of college if the student continues high scholastic achievement, making the total value of the KEES award worth $10,000.
The title honors the late Sen. Jeff Green of Mayfield, who served in the Kentucky General Assembly from 1992 to 1997.
KEES and other Kentucky student aid programs are administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). KEES awards are funded by net Kentucky lottery proceeds and may be used at most colleges and universities in Kentucky. In some cases, the award may be used at out-of-state schools if the major the student is pursuing is not available in Kentucky. No application is necessary for KEES awards, and students may access their KEES account information on www.kheaa.com by setting up a KHEAA account through Zip Access.
