The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s 2019–20 incoming class of 15 Haslam Scholars was recently confirmed.
Allie Hemmings of Hendersonville plans to major in pre-medicine. She took dual-enrollment classes at Volunteer State Community College and earned both her high school diploma and an associate’s degree, graduating with honors Summa Cum Laude in May.
She attended the Governor’s School for the Arts for soprano voice and was chosen to attend Bound for Broadway, a summer program at Long Island University Post. A Girl Scout since kindergarten, she recently completed her Gold Award project—Sew for Seniors, in which she teaches sewing skills to children and teens who make items to nursing home residents.
Allie has had a merit scholarship at Belmont University Academy for classical voice the last three years and has enjoyed performing in many Hendersonville musical performances over the years at HPAC, Actors Point and SOFA.
This year’s appointed scholars were chosen from more than 500 applicants. Each scholar will receive scholarships to cover the estimated cost of in-state tuition and fees and the average cost of campus housing, along with funding to support independent research.
