This scholarship was established in June of 2018 by former OFTC – then Sandersville Technical College – President Dr. John H. Sterrett and his wife, Linda Gray Sterrett. Awards are made annually to deserving nursing students at the Sandersville Campus who are enrolled in the ADN Bridge Program.

Applicants must meet all the scholarship criteria, which includes a letter of recommendation from a nursing instructor, an essay written by the student on why they chose to further their career in nursing, a GPA in the top 50 percentile of the class, and an exemplary work ethic in the classroom.

“The OFTC Foundation North Inc. would like to congratulations Richard on this award,” shared OFTC’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, Kathy Aaron. “We wish you all the best as you move ahead in your nursing career.”

McKinney lives in Macon and drives to OFTC’s Sandersville Campus for class every Wednesday.
