News from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority

FRANKFORT, Ky. (18 Aug 2017) - Thirty-six area students have been named Senator Jeff Green Scholars by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). To earn this honor, a student must have a 4.0 grade point average each year of high school and at least a 28 composite on the ACT.

These students have also earned $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) awards. If they keep their grades up in college, they will have $10,000 to use toward a four-year degree.

The designation honors the late state Sen. Jeff Green of Mayfield, who served in the Kentucky General Assembly from 1992 to 1997.

The area scholars are:
  • Adair County High School: Chassidy Bryant
  • Campbellsville High School: Blair Lamb, Laura Lamb, Murphy Lamb, Caroline McMahon
  • Casey County High School: Payton Atwood, Olga Brunner, Jessalyn Buis, Jenna Carman, Ashley Johnson, Natalie McAninch, Alexander Price
  • Cumberland County High School: Zane Garner
  • Metcalfe County High School: Miles Johnson, Cheyenne Perry, Patrick Warf
  • Russell County High School: Aaron Bunch, Kaitlyn Coffey, Logan Cooper, Zachary Foster, Taylor Grider, Kaleb Harris, Chloe Henson, Sara Robertson
  • Taylor County High School: Chloe Benningfield, Belinda Cheng, Bryana Edrington, Madison Lauer, Bethany Lee, Kaitlyn Lee, Woonggyu Park, Meghan Sanford, Rylen Smith, Trevor South, Andrea Woodcox.
KEES and other Kentucky student aid programs are administered by KHEAA. KEES awards are funded by net Kentucky lottery proceeds and may be used at most colleges and universities in Kentucky. In some cases, the award may be used at an out-of-state school if the major the student is pursuing is not available in Kentucky. No application is necessary for KEES awards.
