Twelve Talladega County students named Masie Knight Memorial scholarship recipients

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Twelve students in Talladega County have been awarded the Masie Knight Memorial Scholarship.

This year’s scholarship recipients are students from B.B. Comer, Childersburg, Fayetteville and Sylacauga. Each student received $1,000 paid to the college of their choice.
