NWTF awards $10,000 national academic scholarship
EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The National Wild Turkey Federation recently announced Rachel Hollingsworth of Jacksonville, Ala., as the national recipient of the 2017 Dr. James Earl Kennamer Academic Scholarship.
The $10,000 scholarship, sponsored by Mossy Oak, will help Hollingsworth further her education as she plans to enroll at Auburn University to study pre-pharmacy.
“It is an honor to receive the National Wild Turkey Federation National Scholarship from an organization that so actively promotes everything I love about the outdoors and the traditions I have grown up with,” Hollingsworth said. “I have been involved in hunting and conservation with my daddy for as long as I can remember. From a very young age, I have enjoyed being outdoors, spending quality time with my daddy, and simply experiencing the hunt. This scholarship is the recognition of a lot of hard work and also a celebration of the hunting tradition.”
She received scholarships through the Choccolocco Valley Longbeards Chapter and the Alabama state NWTF chapter, making her eligible for the national scholarship.
