Fryman-E.jpgThe Morehead State University Foundation has announced Macee Elizabeth Pennington of Morehead is the recipient of the Katie Fryman Memorial Scholarship.

Pennington is a graduate of Rowan County Senior High School and is the daughter of Lee and Jenny Pennington.

She plans to major in business at MSU with the goal of working in human resource management.

Pennington was a member of the Student Government Association, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Youth in Government Club, Science Club and women’s soccer team. She was a candidate for Miss Rowan County, Citizenship Award Winner for her grade level in 2017, and grade representative for the Student Advisory Council.

 “Katie loved to help people. Katie also loved her school, because of that my family and I are honored to be able to help someone and to keep Katie's spirit alive within the school,” said Ethan Fryman, Katie’s brother.

Fryman passed away in 2013.

The scholarship’s namesake was a student at Rowan County Senior High School, an avid supporter of the RCSHS basketball team, who loved going to school and being with her special friends.

The recipient must be a full-time MSU incoming freshman, who is a RCSHS graduate with a 3.5 grade-point-average or above.

Applicants should submit applications along with two letters of recommendation and a personal story of influence. The recommendations should include one from RCSHS faculty or staff and a member of the Morehead community. The personal influence should reflect on experiences of the applicant in relation to how someone has made a difference in their life. Scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $500 and may increase if additional funding is available. The recipient will be selected by a committee and is a one-time award (not renewable).
