WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Tiana Welch is this year's recipient of the Cherokee County School Nutrition Association's Judy Johnson Memorial Scholarship.
The $1,000 scholarship, which is awarded annually to a relative of a Cherokee County school food services employee, was created to honor a much-loved member of the CCSNA family.
Welch is the granddaughter of Indian Knoll Elementary assistant cafeteria manager Phyllis Hunter. She graduated from Woodstock High School and is now a rising senior at Spelman College in Atlanta, where she is majoring in chemistry.
As a cancer survivor, Welch has made it her goal to attend medical school and become an anesthesiologist with the hope of someday helping others as her doctors helped her.
