Hannah Williams of Burkesville has received The First & Farmers National Bank-L.A. Miller Scholarship.

Williams, the daughter of Doug Williams and Delores Williams, is a 2009 graduate of Cumberland County High School. She will be a freshman this fall at Lindsey Wilson, where plans to prepare for a career in speech therapy.

“I chose Lindsey Wilson because of the close-knit, family environment I experienced when I visited the campus,” she said.

In high school, Williams was a member of Future Farmers of America, Future Business Leaders of America and 4-H. She was captain of the Cumberland County cheerleading squad and was a four-time all-district cheerleading honoree. Williams, who also received a Lindsey Wilson cheerleading scholarship, will cheer next school year at LWC.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with First and Farmers National Bank,” Lindsey Wilson Fund Director Brady Button said. “The dedication of First and Farmers National Bank to higher-education opportunities for Cumberland County residents is an encouraging example for all of us.”
