Federal Programs Director Steve Turner presented Adair County High School 2016 graduate Pablo Plancarte with a check Thursday afternoon for two scholarships—totaling $1,250—to help pay for Plancarte’s education at Lindsey Wilson College.
Plancarte was one of 10 students in the state to earn a Kentucky Migrant Program Association scholarship, and the only recipient of the Kentucky Migrant Scholarship Fund award. Both scholarships carry prestige, as they require high ACT scores and grade point averages.
“I can’t think of a more deserving recipient,” Turner says. “I had Pablo in class when he was in middle school and he’s always been a hard working—a really good kid from a really good family. He’s accomplished a lot and I’m sure those accomplishments will continue.”
Plancarte, a biology major at Lindsey, plans to become pharmacist.
