FOUR HICKMAN COUNTY STUDENTS RECEIVE FIRST UT MARTIN NUNNELLY SCHOLARSHIPS – Elias Istre and Jacob Bybee, both of Centerville; Cierra Russell, of Duck River; and Emmalee Mathews, of Lyles, are the first four students to receive scholarships to the University of Tennessee at Martin provided by Bill and Rosann Nunnelly, of Hickman County. The couple recently announced a $22 million bequest to fund scholarships at the university where Bill earned his degree in 1970, making their gift the largest in university history. The four-year scholarships are open to incoming UT Martin freshman students from Hickman County. The Nunnellys visited UT Martin on July 26 and met with two of the four scholarship recipients. Pictured (l-r) are Bybee, Rosann Nunnelly, Russell and Bill Nunnelly. Istre and Mathews were unable to attend.
