Wilder receives Troy Welch Scholarship

October 15, 2013

Tri-State College & Career Expo, the sponsoring agent of the Troy Welch Scholarship given to a student attending the Middlesboro campus of Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College, has awarded a scholarship in the amount of $500 to Middlesboro resident and pre-pharmacy major John Wilder.

Welch, now deceased, was the longtime mayor of the city and played a key role in getting the local SKCTC campus built.

Wyatt also noted that the committee wished to pay tribute to Bruce Trent, former College & Career Expo board chairman, who passed away earlier this year.
