Walker wins Upper Cumberland Women’s Club scholarship

CROSSVILLE — Kayla Danielle Walker of Crossville is the 2013 Upper Cumberland Women’s Club Scholarship recipient. Kayla was award $1,000 by the organization at the February luncheon held at Grey Gables Bed & Breakfast in Rugby, TN. She was nominated for this award by club member Jean Ann Mayberry. Each year the organization selects one deserving recipient from a group nominated by its members to receive a monetary donation to assist them in pursuing academic excellence.

Kayla is a junior at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, majoring in Modified Special Education under the Honors Curriculum Program. She loves helping people and being around children. Being born several weeks prematurely caused underdevelopment of several organs, plus health issues as she grew — bringing many medical bills along the way that her parents are still repaying. This scholarship award will help her reach her life goals. She greatly appreciates the generosity of everyone.

In addition to those that sponsored by their membership, a special “Thank You!” To these people for their additional support: Carla Khouri — Blue Heron Studios, Putnam County Habitat for Humanity, Donna King — Kids on the Rise, PKS Travel & Tours Unlimited, Karla McKinney — Pampered Chef.

Now’s the time to join and help make a difference for another deserving young woman in 2014, plus enjoy being a part of this dynamic group. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 22, at Nick’s Restaurant in Cookeville. Businesswomen/leaders of the Upper Cumberland, you are cordially invited to attend. Lunch is Dutch treat — $15/person plus gratuity. The menu for the day is pineapple chicken with rice pilaf (or summer salad for the vegetarians attending), iced tea, water or coffee, and ice cream pie. The topic will be: "Take What You Have and Make It Sing!" Interior redesign — create a space suited to your lifestyle reusing items you cherish in imaginative new ways. Home staging — Selling? Set the stage by highlighting the best features of your home without spending a lot of money. Homes that show well sell faster and for more money. Custom event planning and floral design — creating the perfect ambiance and unique arrangements for home, weddings or special events.   

Jean Ann Mayberry has spent most of her career as an award winning designer and instructor. She is an FTD Certified European Designer and Color Specialist. She was a member of the American Institute of Floral Design traveling as designer and consultant for interior and floral designs throughout the United States. Her career includes designing floral arrangements in Washington, D.C., for the 1993 Clinton Inauguration and the 2000 Millennium parties at three major Steve Wynn hotels in Las Vegas. After retiring from the American Red Cross she is once again nurturing her creativity with Mayberry RFD — Really Fabulous Designs. To reserve your seat at the luncheon, please email
