LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Heaven Hill Brands is partnering with a local college to support west Louisville.
Simmons College of Kentucky, located on Seventh Street, accepted a $30,000 check on Tuesday to fund two scholarships and a new food service program.
Martious White and Terri Turner are the two scholarship recipients. Both students were required to write a message about how they will help their community. Now that they have the money, they will have to maintain a 3.0 GPA and remain enrolled at Simmons College full-time.
"I feel overly excited, blessed and humble," White said. "I know I have to keep my grades up and maintain a 3.0 which I shouldn't have a problem doing."
