The opportunities afforded recipients of Tennessee Baptist Foundation scholarships often reach beyond the confines of their university campus, something Megan Hurst understands all too well.
"I am very grateful for my Tennessee Baptist Foundation scholarship," Megan shares.
"For me to receive such a wonderful education from a prestigious Baptist institution is an answer to prayer."
Megan was looking for a Christ-centered college like Carson-Newman where she could could grow spiritually. Through her studies at Carson-Newman, mission work in places like Gambia, and the love and support of Tennesse Baptists, Megan's life will never be the same.
"I am so encouraged by the generosity of Tennessee Baptists that I plan to go into the world and echo this giving spirit. Their investment in my life will be passed on to many others in the name of Jesus. Thank you Tennessee Baptist Foundation!"
Megan, along with over 200 other students last year, were supported by Tennessee Baptists, past and present, to provide opportunites for continuing their education. For more information on how to receive or fund a scholarship, contact us.
