TTCU Presents McDonough Scholarship5/21/2019

McDonough Scholarship Recipient


On May 16th, we had the privilege of meeting with the Metropolitan Nashville Retired Teachers Association (MNRTA) as they awarded the McDonough Scholarship on behalf of TTCU for $1000.00 to Darius Adams of Whites Creek High School. Darius will be attending Tennessee State University in the fall to study Music Education. He aspires to be a music director and educator in the arts and share his love of the language of music with many. Congrats to Darius and a huge thank you to MNRTA who continue to support our Davidson and Shelby county public educations systems!

The McDonough Scholarship is a $1000.00 scholarship awarded in the name of Mr. McDonough, a former TTCU Board Member and past president of the MNRTA.  This scholarship is provided to an accomplished student pursuing higher education in the field of education. The MNRTA selects a panel to judge applicant qualifications based on merit and recommendations provided by school counselors.
