COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A Cumberland County resident has been named a Duo County Scholar at Lindsey Wilson College.

The $3,000 tuition scholarship is given annually to a first-time, full-time Lindsey Wilson freshman from Duo County's service area, which includes parts of Adair, Cumberland and Russell counties.

"Duo County is proud to continue this partnership with Lindsey Wilson College," said Duo County Telecom Director of Marketing Eric West. "Duo County understands that it is important to support our local youths' pursuit of higher education."
