CROSSVILLE — Allyson Scruggs, an Early Childhood Education student from Cumberland County High School, has been honored as the spring 2014 High School Student of the Term at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Crossville.

Each term an outstanding student is selected to represent each high school program taught at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Crossville. These students are selected by their instructors to represent their class as a Student of Merit. The instructors consider grades, work ethics and extracurricular activities when choosing their student representative. These names are then reviewed and a TCAT High School Student of the Term is chosen. The winner receives a scholarship provided by the TCAT General Advisory Council.

According to Early Childhood Education instructor Lucinda Whittenburg, “It is my pleasure to nominate Allyson Scruggs for student of the term. Allyson is a hard worker that goes the extra mile. She enjoys serving others from young children to the elderly. Allyson’s dream goal is to be a pediatric RN. She has completed two semesters of Early Childhood Education here at TCAT Crossville and has completed her CNA certification all while in high school. She is currently working full time at WyndRidge Nursing Home after school each day. She has also excelled here at Campus Kid’s Corner pre-school lab.
