CROSSVILLE — CoLinx is proud to announce the winners of its annual Richard Nealon Memorial Scholarship fund. Richard Nealon was a highly regarded supervisor at CoLinx who passed away suddenly. Each year CoLinx and its employees sponsor a golf tournament in his honor with all proceeds going to a scholarship fund in Richard's name. The fund is split between CCHS and Stone Memorial graduating students. To win the award, the student must be a child of a CoLinx employee and have the highest GPA of those applying. This year's winners are Jonathon Elmore of Cumberland County High School and Kyle Gibson of Stone Memorial High School. Each student received a one time award of $1756.50. The students recently attended a luncheon at CoLinx.
