MARINE CORPS LOGISTIC BASE ALBANY, GA -- The American Society of Military Comptrollers awarded scholarships to two local high school students May 16.
For more than 10 years the society has awarded scholarships. This year's recipients were Lisa Stevens, Terrell County High School senior, and Kristin Tillman, Colquitt County High School senior. Both students received $500 to help pay for their college tuition.
Stevens will attend Albany State University in the fall to earn a major in accounting. Tillman plans to attend Griffin Technical College in Griffin, Ga.
Every year the ASMC raises $500 for one scholarship by hosting a golf tournament and through other fundraisers, said Cecellia Lyon, president of the ASMC. However, with the help of the Wal-Mart in Albany, which donated $500, the society was able to award a second scholarship.
