VISUALLY IMPAIRED STUDENT REAPS $99,000 WORTH OF SCHOLARSHIPS FROM METHODIST UNIVERSITY
Not all graduates of the Governor Morehead School for the Blind move on to college, and those who do often don’t get a lot of scholarship money. But Katelyn Nicole Moore, one of five students who graduated Friday, stands out. She has been awarded $99,000 in scholarships to attend Methodist University in Fayetteville. “I was really happy,” said the 19-year-old from Garner, clad in her blue cap and gown.
Methodist awarded the visually impaired student a presidential scholarship worth $64,000 and a valedictorian scholarship worth an additional $35,000.
