Paying for college just got a little easier for Cheyenne McMullen. The Wingo resident and
Graves County High School graduate was awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Foundation
for Rural Service (FRS) and Telecom Management Services (TMS) to help her attend the
University of Tennessee at Martin.
Cheyenne is the daughter of Jason and Kara McMullen. In high school, she participated in the
wind ensemble, various honor bands and the “Screamin’ Eagle Marching Band” as the drum
major for two years. She was also involved in the Academic Team, “Fermata Nowhere” A
Capella group and the Archery Team. She plans to study music education at UT-Martin and
hopes to one day teach band in high school or college.
“The scholarship means a lot to me because this will help me out a lot with expenses for
college, especially with the cost of housing at UT-Martin,” says McMullen. “I’m very excited and
grateful to receive the scholarship.”
FRS was established in 1994 and seeks to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout
rural America by advancing an understanding of rural telecommunications issues.
