The recipient from Anderson County High School is Skylar Cheyenne Mozingo, daughter of Todd and Tomeka Mozingo. She plans to begin at Roane State Community College and, though torn between agriculture and special education, is leaning more towards becoming a special education teacher.
The recipient from Clinton High School is Jackson Cade Crowe, son of David and Lydia Crowe. After working with students with disabilities at his school, he, too, would like to go into the field of special education.
