Delta Faucet awards $78,000 in college scholarships to children of employees


JACKSON, Tenn. — Some area college students will be able to continue their goal of achieving a higher education thanks to a special monetary award.

Delta Faucet awarded $78,000 in college scholarships Tuesday afternoon for children of Delta Faucet employees. Recipients must have a parent or guardian who is a full-time employee to be eligible.

All students who received the scholarship have to be enrolled at an accredited university or trade school and maintain a 2.5 GPA.

The students said it is a major contribution toward their education.

“I know it’s a big impact on my family and me as a whole to help pay for my books,” said Hunter Faulkner, a student at Austin Peay State University. “It’s just an extra little nudge and help when I transition in and out of school.”

“I have been receiving this scholarship for four years now,” said Chandler Wilson, who attends Tennessee State University. “I’m very appreciative of Delta Faucet acknowledging our academic achievements at school, working hard, knowing that it’s not going unnoticed.”

Delta Faucet representatives said many scholarship recipients have summer internships with the company.
